Last night I ran a short run of letterpress business cards on the Platen Press. This was my first time running something this small. Paul, my instructor, helped a lot during the process.

They are printed on Mohawk Black Cards with Silver Ink. As my website is done in Helvetica, so is this… I am pretty happy with how they turned out and it was nice doing small little cards on the big machine!

Above is my type locked into the chase and then below locked into the Platen Press.
