Sexy Letterpress Video



Just found this video on the Pistachio Press blog. Rachael originally found it on Sycamore Street Press blog. Snaps both Eva and Rachael for sharing their find.

I love this video, it shows how sexy letterpress printing can be (okay, I'm a printing geek so you might not find it as sexy as I do). Repeat Press use a Vandercook in this video, which is different to what we use here at Poppy -- we have platens, whereas the Vandy is a cylinder. But it still shows how easy it is to fall in love with the process of printing by hand.

Glad you think it's sexy, too. My husband thinks it's the music, but it's totally the printing :)

Isn't that the best film of printing you've ever seen.
