***This class does NOT take place at the normal Handcraft Studio location. It is held off-site at Western Editions studio! The address is 1420 45th Street #40, Emeryville, CA 94608***

Tis the season to send cards, fa-la-la-la-la! In this letterpress printing class, we will work with vintage wood type to create three holiday greetings and print them on an antique Vandercook Proofing Press. You will also learn a bit about the history of letterpress (like where the saying "mind your p's and q's comes from!), the basic set up of the press, and how to mix a custom Pantone ink color. You will also hand crank your own set of 12 letterpress cards and customize each either by lining the envelopes with assorted papers (patterns, colors, old books, dictionaries, and encyclopedias) or watercoloring. 

Western Editions is a letterpress studio that creates and prints one-of-a-kind designs for a variety of needs. We specialize in custom wedding invitations to personalized designs for correspondence and business. We hand feed each sheet of paper through our 1960s Vandercook Press that results in an impression you can both see and feel. Follow along on Instagram @westerneditions
