For the past 3 years, we've been keeping all the scraps from our various printing projects. There's no way we could throw away those pretty, letterpress printed pieces of paper! This spring, we turned some of them into garlands to decorate our trade show and craft show booths. The response was so positive that we decided to make them into affordable kits available to everyone.
We can put together a garland kit with 1 or 2 custom colors. Please see the separate listing.
+ Included in kit: 3 pieces of twine. Each is 6' (182.9 cm). 72 letterpress circles. Each is 2" in diameter (5.1 cm), and has a small hole punched out. Instructions on back label.
+ Please note: 1) Each kit is unique. Therefore, the kit you receive will not be exactly the same as the ones as you see in the photos. 2) Because these are made from various upcycled letterpress goods, we cannot accommodate requests for specific imagery. 3) The milk glass, posters, and fortune teller from the photos are not included with the kit.
+ Medium: Letterpress printing on 100% cotton (tree free) paper or 30% post consumer recycled card stock with soy based inks.
+ Shipping: Slipped into a cello pack with a stiff chip board insert for protection and mailed in a sturdy cardboard mailer with USPS First Class Mail.
Letterpress is a centuries-old printing process. It involves an inked and raised form being pressed into the paper, creating an impression that you can see and feel. At Sycamore Street Press, we hand crank our goods one sheet of paper and one color at a time through our vintage Vandercook #3 letterpress. We pay close attention to detail, but the hand crafted nature of the process does lead to some variation in color and impression. These are an inherent part of the process, and add to its bespoke charm.
