what would you print?

Today I had the pleasure of Catherine Lash, owner of The Wedding Co., participate in one of my Letterpress Curiosity Workshops. In her industry, she's seen a lot of letterpress wedding invitations and she knows what she likes. Now, she's seen the process first hand and discovered the joy of inked type hitting the paper and how that lovely impression is made. Because it was a private session, Catherine had the press to herself. And in four hours, she was able to print off quite a few things. By the end of it she took home a stack of stationery with The Wedding Co. and The Crane Chandalier Project names. From there she also squeezed out a few prints of her children's names with the idea of framing them in the future.

I never know what's going to come out of these sessions. It's such a treat to see participants get excited about learning letterpress and the possibilities of personal stationery. So, what would you print in the Letterpress Curiosity Workshop?
