Bed Press Printing Workshop


Here's that old-fashioned, quick and feisty printing technique!  Get your Gutenberg on! Set type to create a broadside, hand ink it, and imprint it using one of our vintage bed presses.

Presses for this workshop include the simple sign-card press used for decades by stores to create instant signage to our Vandercook Number 2 newspaper proofing press.

Participants will learn to set type, prepare it on the press bed, and run a couple of copies of their work.  The ink may be wet at the end of the evening, but participants will take away two, two-color copies of their work.

No experience necessary, and instructors will guide you through tips and tricks to make your typesetting appealing and fun.
