One of the nice things about having our letterpress shop is a direct involvement with our clients. Kristen, one of Ray’s former students, and Lee wanted their wedding invitations printed by Lead Graffiti. We like getting our clients more personally involved so we had Kristen and Lee print a few sheets of the edition on our Vandercook SP-15.
Kristen, an illustrator, supplied some special watercolor paper with a deckle edge and we printed the invitation from a copperplate (seen at the bottom of the photo) which they took with them as a memento of the occasion.
A nice way to spend a Friday morning, for sure.

How about a basic type composition and printing on a tabletop letterpress workshop that results in an edition of Valentine’s Day cards? You can choose from our collection of images and metal & wood type to design and print a small edition of cards.
Lead Graffiti is offering just such a workshop on Sunday, January 25th. Check out the link below for some ideas using our collection of type and images.
We were thinking a good line for this image would be “A tisket, a tasket, and a big Valentine’s Day basket for you.”
