We had the pleasure of hosting Laura and Jim last weekend at the studio as they pressed their entire invitation suite by themselves! They designed the suite themselves that features Laura’s favorite flowers, hydrangeas. They are actually growing flowers in their backyard right now to cut centerpieces for their wedding!
After we got the photopolymer plates in the mail from Boxcar, we taught them a crash course on the basics of letterpress printing a few weekends ago. We helped them set up the press, mix inks, and were here to answer questions, but L+J, you were troopers–YOU did it on your own!
It was wonderful to see such a great couple work together and complement each other’s talents and strengths. They worked together beautifully and took turns with runs of the press to give each others’ hands and arms a rest.
They finished addressing all the envelopes this week and just let us know that everything is in the mail! Congrats, you worked hard, and your suite is beautiful!
