The Printing Process

Letterpress printing is a labor of love. Each one of these cards is printed one color at a time on an antique Heidelberg Windmill platen press from 1960. Each color is hand mixed and there are separate plates for each color as well. Between runs, the press needs to be thoroughly cleaned of course and then reinked for the next run. After 4 color runs, there is a scoring run and then on to packaging. It takes quite a while, but I love doing it.
