Like a Champ Poster


Production Method





Neuarmy | Ryan Katrina



Chris Romano

While there were some tough lessons learned in the production and photography of these posters, the design and printing were still very successful and the poster is not afraid to remind you of that. Gold metallic ink on rich black paper may be difficult to photograph, but that does not stop these posters from looking great.

Project Description

"Like a Champ" was originally hand-carved and printed as a 4-by-6-inch linocut print, the lettering was then enlarged and repurposed to create this screen print. Numbered and initialed on the front, rolled and mailed in a heavy duty Kraft mailing tube.

Made in USA, Mfg. in Philadelphia

Production Lesson(s)

Particular attention was paid to the textures and how they translated once enlarged from the initial hand-carved linocut block and print. Pretty straight-forward printing process—just had to keep an eye in the gold flake in the ink clogging up the screen, especially in the counters of the smaller type. Also, photographing the print proved to be quite a challenge—the gold metallic ink washed out a lot on the black stock—overall it's much richer in person.”
