Last night we went to the Arm in Williamsburg. A great place to go for letterpress. We typically use a Vandercook when we are there. This press really creates lovely impressions, and the physical energy it takes to operate it is significant…just ask Caroline! Operating this machine is quite a workout, or at least it appears to be because I just watch 🙂 Anyway, we went to press last night to print an order for our “We’ve Moved” cards. We thought it would be interesting to show the steps that go into pressing a card. After we draw and finalize the design, we send it to have plates made. Once we get the photopolymer plates back, we are ready to go. We put photos of the pressing process below.
