It's time to meet up and letter together, but for February we have a special treat! Fellow club member Ryan Basile of Double Trip Press will host us so we'll get to see some letterpress amazingness (but bring your supplies, we'll also have time to draw together!).
Double Trip Press is a custom letterpress printing and design studio in the heart of East Lakeview specializing in unique wedding invitations, branded business cards, custom stationery, and more. All printing is done by hand on vintage printing equipment; one color at a time, one sheet at a time, the old-fashioned way. One of the most remarkable capacities that their method of printing allows for is the easy translation of hand drawing or hand lettering to this beautiful tactile print form. In a short hands-on activity, attendees will be able to see the process from pencil sketch, to digitized vector, to plate, to ultimately pull a print on their own to experience letterpress first hand.
