The first Cranky Pressman Letterpress Workshop of 2011 recently took place in Salem, Ohio. We've agreed to endure several of these events this year. They are in association with AIGA Cleveland and the classes are limited in size so griping and discipline can be handed out judiciously. The next camp is on July 23, 2011. Look for more details and enrollment information here. Book early to avoid disappointment. There is no crying in letterpress (unless of course you drop a heavy ass piece of lead on you finger).
To sweeten the pie and lessen the pain we've created these certificates to give to anyone who satisfactorily completes the workshop. Designed and wickedly illustrated by Oliver Barrett, it gives you something to show your dad and prove you are not just sitting around doing nothing all day. Keep reading for a detail shot and production notes.
The certificate print is 6-3/8"x9-1/2" in size, letterpress printed in 4 spot colors on Crane's Lettra Pearl White 110# cover weight cotton stock.
