Holiday Typesetting

  • blackbird letterpress 1607 Main Street Baton Rouge, LA, 70802 United States (map)

'Tis the season - for holiday cards! Rather than buy yours at a store, why not design and print your own? That's exactly what you'll get to do in this holiday typesetting class.

You'll get the chance to explore our collection of metal and wood type, along with vintage image cuts. We'll learn a bit about the history and technique of setting type by hand, and then you'll design and typeset your own greeting card. Then we'll go step by step to learn in depth about the process of make-ready and printing on our Vandercook letterpress.

You'll take away a set of 20 cards of your design - or swap a few with your classmates!

This class is $110 and is taught by Rebecca, a printer and designer at Blackbird. Price includes all materials. Preregistration is required. Sign up here
