Letterpress Classes

I’ve really enjoyed teaching letterpress classes the last two years. If things go as planned and we get our French visas in a few weeks (fingers crossed) then I’ll be on hiatus for 2011. So October and November is the last chance to print your own business cards. You can either choose your a design from one of these or else submit your own design and we print them all together. They are one color/one sided and usually printed in a gray or a very dark blue (the class votes). You get 250 business cards. The class is $125/student and the price includes all supplies.

1. Saturday, October 23rd (3 spots) design deadline: Oct 13th
2. Saturday, November 13th (2 spots) design deadline: Nov 3rd

Three Letterpress Bits

1. Studio Share – We are looking for someone to share our letterpress studio. Rent our Vandercook 4 and 500 square foot studio on Valencia Street in San Francisco on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is perfect for someone who is looking to print professionally but does not want to buy a press or procure a full-time studio.Go here for more information.

2. Letterpress Classes – There are still spots in the May, June, and July letterpress classes. You get 250 business cards and tuition is cheaper than if you ordered custom business cards yourself! Go here for more information.

3. Printing – I am taking printing jobs right now. I usually only print 2-3 jobs per month. For a quote email me a picture of your design (if possible) and specs. What size? How many? How many colors? and Timeline. Email me at ohhappydayblog@gmail.com
