Project Description

Our friends Jasmine & Yale are getting married soon, and we decided to go all-out with our letterpress habit to create their invitations. The design process started on the computer, but the goal from the start was to create something really special, where the computer would only play one part of the tune. For the invitation itself, we decided to create a 5-by-7-inch card with a three color design (3/0), using two plates of computer-generated photopolymer, and one “plate” of actual, historic wood type.

Production Lesson(s)

Using two split fountains in one job ended up creating the illusion of way more plates than we really used. It's a heck of a good way to make use of a limited number of plates.”
