Letterpress Happy Hour - July 25th, 2011

After the last busy, busy happy hour with all the presses pressing, we had a much quieter happy hour last night. Kendra, Miranda, and Molly were all there to set type.
Miranda was there with Baby Eliot setting type for his birth announcement. Being the smarty pants that she is, she had already printed most of the announcement design before Eliot arrived. Now she's just working to fill in all his birth date details. He was a welcome addition to the happy hour crew!
Molly was a student in a recent Using Photopolymer on the Letterpress workshop so she got a crash course in typesetting last night. She was a natural!
Kendra was hard at work setting type to print a short poem. Kendra is a new member at Pyramid and she's been taking screenprinting lessons with Becca. We were happy to steal her for an evening in the letterpress studio.

All these photos were taken with the Hipstamatic app for iPhone during our Hipstamatic vs. Instagram discussion. We like mixing new technology with our old school hobbies at letterpress happy hour!


  1. You guys really seem to be working a lot! I would love to read the poem Kendra printed because I´m a huge literature fan and I love reading new stuff. Last year I went to Argentina on a whim and got an apartment for rent in buenos aires. I actually went there because I had heard they have very good writers over there. No wonder Borges was born in BA.
