Introduction to Letterpress

The letterpress printing process dates back to the 15th century and the time of Gutenberg. We’ll cover typesetting, inking, printing, and paper selection as you become familiar with the terminology and VisArts’ presses. You’ll have time to create multiple pieces and trade work with classmates, which will help you build a small collection of handmade letterpress art.

Special Notes

  • You will need to provide any specialty paper for individual projects; basic paper and other materials and equipment are provided.
  • A galley deposit of $20 is required for setting and printing type; this deposit will be returned on the last day of class after your type has been redistributed.
