Today we ventured to Skylab Letterpress and it was a great experience. Being able to see everything up close and really experience how such beautiful things are made was really interesting. I like how even being a designer I will still hopefully in the future get to work with a letterpress. The paper, ink, letterpresses, and design are wonderful along with the owner Bob Atkins. We got the chance to collect some of their gang sheets, misprints, and work for other businesses. The physicality of a business card or invitation is the greatest part of letterpress. Bob explained that the physical touch is what is so moving about having something letter-pressed, being able to feel the relief of the letters and the quality of the paper and its texture. It makes me want to design something just so I can get it letterpressed!
