Class size limited to individuals or a group of 2 (split the cost with a friend!)

Letterpress print your own business cards!
You will print 250 2 color, 2”x3.5” business cards (additional quantity is possible, please inquire)

You’ll provide the design; we’ll provide the instruction.  Learn the basics of letterpress printing on the flatbed Challenge proof press: mixing ink, press make ready, and printing from a polymer plate.  Your letterpress-compatible design (specs below) is needed 1 week prior to the workshop.  The plate will be ready to go when you arrive. 

Please email info@vertallee.com to register!

File specs:
• Line art and type are best for letterpress (see image above.)  Large solids and heavy coverage are worst for letterpress.
• Illustrator or pdf files with all fonts outlined and spot colors are required.
