Registration


My first attempt at two colour registration. It's far from perfect, but for a first go, I'm happy. Today's printing was for testing purposes only, so I just used standard office paper.


I only received one rusty old gauge pin with my presses, so I've reproduced an idea I saw on the Adventures in Letterpress blog (originally from Briar Press). It worked a treat, and I didn't have to worry about smashing gauges.


And just a photo of my Adana, warm in the sun.

Looks great! I like the design too!

Hi,

How did you make those mock "gauge pins?" Thanks!

Hi Bill

The gauge pins are little folded pieces of cardboard, taped down on the tympan. I started off making them rather large, but I've now reduced them down to about 6mm square.
