Productive day in the studio

A full rack of prints, including loads of new screenprinted spring flower note cards, and colourful journal covers.

Type sorting

We’re still sorting out the cabinet full of type that came from The Voice of Canadian Serbs, a community newspaper that was once produced on Drouillard Road here in Windsor. This is a fun one, and we have quite a lot of it:

Letterpress workshop

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!

Letterpress postcards

Here’s a look at a few of the hundreds of postcards we’ve printed this week. Since it’s not possible to show them all, we made a video:


Today in the studio

Some fun new letterpress cards using one of the old newspaper images given to us by a friend of Levigator Press.

Our new press!

This weekend we closed the studio and drove up to Oshawa to pick up this gorgeous beast:

It’s a 6.5×10 Chandler & Price Pilot, fully refurbished, in beautiful condition, and ready to be put to work. It’s a perfect press for our tiny space, with the capability to handle large scale production while being user friendly and a fantastic learning press for our students and studio members. We can’t wait to fire it up and get printing.

Persian calligraphy class

Here are some photos from tonight’s fun class taught by guest instructor Tina Rouhandeh. If you missed it, you’re in luck! We are offering another session on Thursday, October 27. Call or email us to sign up!
