Letterpress

Turn your workspace into a print shop with LETTERPRESS. Join Tina Aszmus for a month of techniques, tips and inspiration for one of the hottest trends in paper. Learn how to incorporate the art of letterpress into documenting your every day. Our next class is a perfect introduction to our new collection of Letterpress plates. Enroll now and start printing like a pro.


SOME OF THE TECHNIQUES WE’LL COVER :

Basic 1 color printing, 2/3 tone printing, blind impressions, creating letterpress Project Life® cards and inserts, making your own letterpress accents, mixing stamps and letterpress, letterpress + watercolor, building a pattern, putting together a large image from small elements, diecutting letterpress images to make your own accents – and much more!


WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO GET STARTED WITH LETTERPRESS :

•A willingness to explore and make a few mistakes along the way
Lifestyle Crafts L Letterpress platform bundle
•Manual diecut machine (Cuttlebug, Epic, Big Shot, Evolution)
Letterpress Paper (have extra on hand, so you can experiment without running out!)
Letterpress Ink (the sample pack in the class kit will start you off, but you’ll want more of your favorite colors)

Optional Supplies:
Additional Studio Calico letterpress plates – Many of our techniques and inspiration pieces will use more than one design. Our first letterpress release is full of designs that complement one another, making it easy to mix and match to create a custom look.
Studio Calico Craft Dies – Studio Calico’s wafer thin dies are designed to work with our letterpress plates and stamp sets to create your own custom accents.
Cleaning Cloths – These aren’t required, but you’ll find they make clean up a lot easier!
•A large brayer – The letterpress bundle comes with an ink brayer, but you’ll find a larger brayer makes even inking on larger plates a cinch.


Bonus Digital Files :

  • printables from In A Creative Bubble
  • mini album die cut set from Hello Forever (.studio, .PNG, .SVG)
  • accent tags die cut set from Hello Forever (.studio, .PNG, .SVG)

We hope to see you all in class!
