Letterpress Printmaking

Letterpress printing reconnects us to our centuries-old traditions of creating hand-built documents. Lettrpress printing has an impact and gravitas that a digital print does not. I run my own press, mitchelka Show Card Press, and also print out of the Museum of Printing and Flower City Book Arts Center producing traditional cards, posters, flyers and chap books, as well as printing on fabric for t-shirts, hangings and large-scale scrolls.
