With all of the Royal Wedding hoopla we got to see some rather questionable design choices being made. We may agree or disagree on the event’s branding effort, but that does not matter. Far more interesting is the poster developed by Brittany Watson Jepsen that showcases the royal procession route in a beautifully designed and printed poster that combines an illustration printed in giclée and hit of red letterpress.

This poster was designed for the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. It shows the drive from Buckingham Palace to the place of the wedding site, Westminster Abbey and indicates major London locations.

A poster worth a thousand lessons…Registering letterpress to giclée can be quite a challenge. Each sheet of Crane Lettra had to be hand fed into the giclée printer very carefully to ensure consistent printing of the image so we wouldn’t be angry at ourselves when trying to register the photopolymer letterpress plates to the giclée image. After the paper is through in the giclée printer, we cut down the parent sheets to fit into our vintage Vandercook SP-15 letterpress. After adjusting the registration, packing, and amount of ink on the press, everything was just right and we started the process of hand printing the posters one at a time. Once we are to this point there is little adjustment and, other than adjusting the ink, it is only a matter of printing through the pieces. So that is what we did.
