Send your next note with personalized style!

Learn to design with vintage movable type and take home a set of 10 letterpress printed cards with matching printed envelopes.

Whether it’s a clever phrase or a classic design with your name or monogram, students will be able to customize their stationery in every step of the process. Participants will design their pieces with movable lead type, learn how to lock up a chase, and mix ink by hand. Each person will print their own design on one of our tabletop platen 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.
