Join us for an introduction to letterpress as you make 15 simple holiday greeting cards from our movable type. Come with an idea for no more than 20 words, look through our dingbats, or select a preprinted image to create your design. You’ll experience the basics of type composition, get help printing on the press, and leave with the cards you can put to immediate use.
This summer our multi-session, signature typesetting, and press usage class will feature the printing of broadsides, cards, and ephemera. Explore the art and craft of typesetting and letterpress printing in the Center’s Pressroom which features Vandercook cylinder letterpresses and the largest publicly accessible collection of movable type in the mid-Atlantic region.
