Today we had a group from the University of Windsor’s Leddy Library in the studio for a group letterpress session in which they designed and printed a collaborative broadside. Everyone had a blast and they made some great posters!
This is a fun class we’ve done quite a few times now with different groups. If you have a group of friends or colleagues who would love a fun, creative outing together, give the studio a ring and we’ll be happy to help you make it happen!
We gave letterpress demos in the studio during Walkerville Art Walk, and produced these two new 9×12 broadsides!
New four colour screenprint, just finished, and available now in our studio shop:
Available now in the studio shop, and soon to be available in our Etsy shop.
11×17 letterpress and block printed broadsides on 65-lb French Paper in your choice of metallic blue and baby blue on white, or metallic blue and white on green.
We printed up some copies of our new Indigo Bunting colouring poster during our studio tour printing demos. This is the first print in our series of Point Pelee birds.
These 12″ by 19″ original screenprinted posters are now available in our shop or online through the Levigator Press Etsy shop.
Here is our shop sample all coloured in:
Our new Rat King broadsides are printed!
Here’s an oblique shot of the precarious lockup, achieved with hope and luck and many tiny pieces of rolled up paper and mat board:
We printed some on white and some on orange:
Broadsides are 11×17″, printed on French Paper (colours: Sweet Tooth and Orange Fizz). You can get them by dropping by the studio, or wait a few days until we get them listed in the Levigator Press Etsy shop!
Today in the studio: I just finished screenprinting these broadsides, featuring Surprise Party In The Snow characters discussing the impending arrival of one of Windsor and Essex County’s grossest pests: the dreaded fish fly. I’ve never seen them get quite this bad myself, but I’ve heard stories from my mother-in-law’s childhood of Leamington shopkeepers clearing the carcasses off the sidewalks with a shovel when a broom just couldn’t handle the quantity. Yuck, right? But it’s just part of Essex County life, and a sign of a healthy lake.
So grit your teeth, ignore the crunching under your shoes, and get the broadside! These puppies are printed on lovely French paper in your choice of white, yellow, or blue, and measure 9×12 inches (paper size) to fit into a standard frame.
