Pressure Printing (Stratography)
Instructor: Brad Vetter
Friday Afternoon, 3½ hours
Maximum number of participants: 15
This workshop will delve into the fun alternative image-making techniques of pressure printing. Pressure printing has become an integral part of Brad Vetter’s unique letterpress aesthetic. Brad honed this technique while printing show posters at the infamous Hatch Show Print, and now continues at his own studio. The workshop will talk about and demonstrate the advantages of tight registration and ability to quickly create an image. Throughout the workshop you will be creating multi-color prints integrating hand-set type, Vandercook printing, and printing large pressure printed backgrounds. Lots of fun and you can add another tool to your letterpress arsenal.
