Small Talk: Letterpress Workshop

Get your hands dirty, make something and learn about letterpress!

Hosted by AIGA Charlotte and Old North State Press, this hands-on, small talk will teach you the basics of letterpress printing, tools of the trade and history of the craft. At the end, you will personalize and print a keepsake on a Vandercook cylinder press. This event is for members-only and is limited to 5 people per session

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

Old North State Press is dedicated to preserving the tradition and craft of fine letterpress printing. We started our journey with the acquisition of a simple cylinder press over 20 years ago. The studio now boasts an impressive array of heavy, outdated machines and equally obsolete related equipment, all meticulously maintained and loved. In addition to supporting custom client work where the unique characteristics of letterpress printing is desired, we produce original designs for stationery, note cards, wedding invitations, birth announcements, broadsides and other printed matter. Above all, we most enjoy collaborating with our clients and other designers to make beautiful things.
