We're bringing this workshop back due to popular demand with a whole new process, which opens up a WHOLE new world of possibilities. 

We all love bright, modern cards, gift tags, coasters and ornaments.  If you've always had an itchin' to learn how to make them yourself, then this Simple Letterpress Workshop is a must.

During the course of the workshop, you'll learn how to use the Evolution Advanced die-cutting machine, coupled with custom-made photopolymer printing plates, to create deep-impression letterpressed and embossed goods.  AS A PART OF THE COURSE, IF YOU SEND US AN IMAGE YOU'D LIKE TO LETTERPRESS, WE'LL HAVE A PLATE MADE FOR YOU TO USE DURING THE WORKSHOP!

You'll learn proper techniques on ink application, an overview of brayer use, and the correct types of dyes and inks to use on varying weights of paper.  You'll also get a chance to "faux letterpress" with the use of fun embossing folders. After lots of practice, you'll have time to make several sets of coasters, cards and gift tags to take home with you or gift to loved ones and friends.

All materials are provided in the cost of the workshop.
