PAST Letterpress Postcards - Print & Exchange!




Saturday, May 18, 10am-4pm


About the Course

In this fun and fast paced workshop, participants will use the Signal-Return collection of lead type, cuts, and ornaments to design and print a set of 10 postcards on our table top presses. Perfect to send to friends or save for later!  Each class ends with a postcard trade among the group of participants. 

This class will teach the primary skills of letterpress printing using type from Signal-Return’s extensive collection. Each participant will learn how to properly compose, lock-up, and print a form on our presses.

Cost of workshop includes materials, instruction and takeaway prints. Paper in this workshop is from French Paper Company, a small Michigan Paper Mill around for more than 140 years.
