Letterpress Christmas cards

December 25, 2012

I took a letterpress class, and for the final project I printed our family Christmas cards using my own calligraphic image on a variety of papers. The tree background was printed with a handmade photopolymer plate. To print the second color, I traced my own calligraphy in Illustrator to create a digital vector file and ordered the plate from Boxcar Press. It was helpful to learn the letterpress process firsthand, and I was very pleased with the cards, but I’m not sure how much chance I will have to personally print letterpress projects in the future.
