Phew!

May 24, 2010 § 5 Comments

Yesterday I completed my very first letterpressed wedding suite of invitations. Oh my goodness, it was like giving birth to something! It was so exciting for me to have this opportunity, and in addition it was an excellent learning experience. I did the calligraphy for all of the pieces, had plates made by Boxcar press, then printed them myself on my good ol’ Kelsey 5 x 8. And I topped it off with calligraphy on the envelopes. I took a few pictures of the process and the finished product is at the end.

Mixing ink to make the right color.

All inked up!

First phase complete, drying.

And the outcome…
