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.

Wow! What a fun and unique experience in Boston! This was our family's last "hurrah" for our long East Coast vacation and we had so much fun! Ted taught us all things we never knew about printing and we also got to try the printing press out for ourselves which was SO fun. Our kids thought this was the neatest experience and it was great to be able to do something so hands on. Anyone considering this should definitely book it!

This was such an amazing airbnb experience and my absolute favorite one so far! The location is in a cute factory with a rustic feel and Ted really made the studio space feel homey with a lot of his printed work on the walls. He was such a delight to talk to and has an amazing wealth of knowledge of the history of letterpress and geographical fun facts. He took us step by step through the letterpress process and helped us personalize our printing experience. We left with smiles on our faces and a stack of absolutely gorgeous hand printed cards.

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!!
