In this one-day workshop, be merry and bright using vintage holiday blocks.
Get in the holiday spirit! Join us to print wrapping paper or unique holiday gifts for your loved-ones. We will be pulling out our collection of spectacular holiday blocks, cuts, and imagery that is not otherwise available for this fun-filled day of printing. The entire pressroom collection of type will be available, but you do not have to print holiday-themed items. You will become familiarized with type composition, locking up, and printing on sign presses.
