So, as I posted before I have enrolled myself in a letterpress class so as to be able to print my own excellent wedding invitations (and much, much more) for a reasonable price. Turns out it's not that difficult! I am by no means a master, but the fact is that it's a pretty simple process, and the name, broken down into its parts -- letter, press -- sorta says it all.
Now halfway through the class, I'm happy to say that I have picked up steam and am operating much more quickly with the presses and even with hunting for type. Assignment no. 2 was to create an announcement of sorts. Since I'm moving apartments this weekend, I decided to print some postcards to mail out with my new address on them. The added challenge of this assignment was to use two colors, which means you're running each piece of paper through the press twice. Here's the finished product:
Am I a badass or what? This is awesome.
[p.s. there is actually a street name printed, but in case I have any stalkers out there I didn't want to post it... stay away, stalkers!]
