Chicago Lettering Club at Double Trip Press
An outing to observe the letterpress process
- February 12
- 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
- Double Trip Press
It's time to meet up and letter together, but for February there is a special treat! Fellow club member Ryan Basile of Double Trip Press will host the group so attendees will get to see some letterpress amazingness (but bring your supplies, since there also will be time to draw together!).
Double Trip Press is a custom letterpress printing and design studio in the heart of East Lakeview specializing in unique wedding invitations, branded business cards, custom stationery, and more. All printing is done by hand on vintage printing equipment; one color at a time, one sheet at a time, the old-fashioned way. One of the most remarkable capacities that their method of printing allows for is the easy translation of hand drawing or hand lettering to this beautiful tactile print form. In a short hands-on activity, attendees will be able to see the process from pencil sketch, to digitized vector, to plate, to ultimately pull a print on their own to experience letterpress first hand.
