Event Overview

Print your own greeting cards using Spudnik Press’ traditional printing presses. The tactile quality of ink pressed into paper will surely leave an impression on the lucky recipients of your handmade cards!
Students will be able to set their own short saying or phrase and (if desired) combine it with vintage relief blocks featuring festive illustrations. This workshop combines an overview of letterpress printing and history with hands-on art making, and it is a great way to try out a new hobby before taking a longer class. Students can bring any blank cards they desire (so everyone can pick out their favorite size and color). Taking turns, each student will lock up their type and independently print with our platen presses. Students will each make about 20 cards and are encouraged to make a few extras to trade as well! The class is limited to six students so that everyone has time to run a press independently.

What to Bring

20 blank cards (any color, any standard size)

What's Provided

Basic white 5×7” flat cards are available for students who do not bring their own folded cards.

    Best class ever. Excellent instructor and loved the energy in the studio. I left with a super strong grasp of doing something I had no experience with before. Letterpress is so worth all the hard work that goes into it.
