Letterpress at Dartmouth

Today was the last day I could get into the letterpress studio before the end of the semester. Now I have to wait until the fall before I can go back. Sad.

Even sadder was the fact that some nimrod walked off with the Pantone guide, so I had to wing it with my ink. Shame on you mystery nimrod.

Here’s the make-it-up-as-you-go ink math: Silver + yellow + transparent white + brown + black + another? = yay!


I am just in love with silver ink. It is totally my best friend. When I get my Kelsey up and running, the first ink I’m buying is going to be silver – it’s magical.



So for the time being, the last design in the Off Leash series is slobber.

I guess that means that I have dilly-dallied too much and won’t get to start my letterpress career until the fall. Sad.

Louis –

I am sad for you. If I get the remaining supplies I need for my letterpress, I can teach you here…but September’s not that far away, just in case.


So what do you think? I'd love to know!
