Það sem verður gert

At the Quick Letterpress Printing Workshop, we will examine the history and technology that made letterpress printing possible, we will typeset lead type into monogrammed notecards, and we will use an antique Vendercook proofing press to print these notecards onto a range of carstock and fine art papers. Attendees will take home a personalized A2 notecard that they typeset and printed themselves. Great for teams, great for families and great for groups! I've had several bridal showers, company team-building workshops and family outings at the press, and everyone has a great time. Print your family motto or your company vision statement!

Other things to note

This is a hands-on experience, and letterpress printing is a technical trade that takes some physical involvement. Your hand-made item will, indeed, be hand-made by you!

I've taught typesetting workshops for twelve years, know the history and technology of letterpress printing backwards and forwards, and love to introduce people to the rewarding world of hand-set type. Reflex Letterpress is my printing studio in the Charlestown part of Boston, where I do production and instruction in this rewarding not-quite-obselete process.

Staðsetning

The Stove Factory Building is, in fact, a former factory for making stoves. The floors are specially reinforced to take the weight of cast-iron stove bodies, and so is a perfect location for artistic activities of all kinds.

Fantastic workshop! The other great reviews are true to the experience. My boyfriend and I geeked out afterwards because it was so fun. If you are hesitant because of covid, Ted is vaccinated and does abide by covid protocols. As for your knowledge of letterpress, don't worry. I came in with no knowledge and now I'm interested in learning more. Even my boyfriend who knew a bit about letterpress was enjoying the history lesson. Ted is a witty storyteller and engaging teacher. He has visual aides to guide you through the history of letterpress and provides a demo before you make your own card. We aren't from Boston and only came up for a weekend trip, but I know where I'm getting my future wedding and holiday cards! Browse Reflex Letterpress on Instagram to see more about the experience and the cool pieces that Ted has done.

Ted’s overview of the history of letterpress printing was very informative and a nice touch to our two hour workshop. I learned a lot, and I had a lot of fun using the letterpress. Would highly recommend!

I highly recommend this! Even if you do not have a prior interest in letterpress printing, you will still love this workshop. I especially enjoyed Ted's storytelling skills.

This workshop was all around fantastic!! I particularly loved Ted's whirlwind history of letterpress printing, encompassing everything from the history of movable type to the development of cheap paper making techniques and oil based inks... basically a deep dive into every industry that made Gutenberg's printing press possible!! After the history lesson, getting to make personalized cards and operate the press ourselves was really really cool. Ted was an awesome host, super knowledgeable about printing, and a lot of fun to chat to and just hang out with throughout the workshop! I loved every minute of the experience -- DO NOT MISS!!

We had such an amazing time with Ted in his workshop. Learning the background of how the letter press began and some interesting facts was really informative and interesting. It was so much fun to get to work the press and create our unique take home prints. This was a great experience and you should definitely try this!

I had a fun time with Ted. He really knows a lot about the history of letterpress printing and it’s obvious he’s passionate about it and everything related to graphic design. I did it alone and truly enjoyed it. An important thing to mention is that not only is Ted knowledgeable of his job and has the ability to create a friendly environment, but he’s also also a great storyteller.
