Sending hand-written cards is a great way to send love, birthday wishes, and thanks. Hey, it beats sending a Facebook greeting, right? Give your card extra DIY love by letterpressing it. The lucky object of your affection won't be able to stop beaming with joy at your handcrafted and heartfelt goodness.
In this class, you’ll learn the basics of letterpress printing your own greeting cards. This includes an overview of custom plate making, basic ink mixing, printing setup, and proper inking using a brayer. Plus, you’ll be able to apply the techniques you learn in this class to help you create wedding invitations, holiday cards, business cards and art prints. Letterpress FTW!
