Letterpress video...pretty cool

Hellooooo May. Thanks for following my blog if you are a reader. I get excited everyday to see my numbers go up. I want to spread the word further, and try to work on giving you more lets start the month off with an interesting video about a process I can only hope to experience.

I know that this is way beyond my monetary means, but the process of letterpress is awesome and old, and is a really cool way to watch someone make a poster. I was looking at one of my regular blogs, OMG Posters, and came across this video. Watch and see the magic.

  1. Hey Lauren...I too though that it would be an "expensive hobby," but it turns out that the biggest investment would be in your time to learn how to do it. Once you know how, you can rent time on letter press machines for pretty reasonable rates...that is if you don't make friends with people who already have a machine in their homes.

    Definitely something you can do on a budget, or to just try it out and see what you can come up with.
