A Chat with Grapheme
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
You'll learn how to use a large Vandercook proof press (15" x 18"), one of the most user-friendly presses to learn on. Class will cover how to hand set type--with lead, ornamental, and antique wood type available to experiment with--as well as how to print with polymer plates.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
All materials provided.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We love letterpress printing and want to share the experience of making things with our hands, believing it has mental health benefits and the ability to increase creativity and self-awareness.
What do you love most about your job?
The mental clarity that comes from focusing on a meditative task.
