"By ruin your printer, I mean that the fibers will begin clogging the ink head and start spurting out black ink dots on your prints halfway through the run. Lettra is too cottony and it is uncoated meaning the digital prints will be dull and…"

"Go the simplest route you can. Also I should note, Lettra is HORRIBLE for watercoloring in, it will bleed, warp, stretch, and then dry super dull and ugly. If you insist on hand applying the watercolor you need to buy a watercolor paper (they all…"

"I did this exact thing once. Here is the thing - you will ruin your printer if you put regular lettra in in for a long run and digital printers do NOT print evenly as the grippers which pull in the paper to the printer shift, on the same part of the…"

Danielle Feliciano replied to davina farinola's discussion Printer for hire
"For a job like this I charge 40 an hour. A one color job of 100-200 would take maybe 2 - 3 including cleanup, so I would round up to 100 probably. I charge per print if I have to do all the incidentals like ordering paper, cutting paper, prepping…"

Halftone Help?

Hey ladies, I want to see if anyone has had some good success working with screens or halftones. I wrote up a blog post specifically for this with my different experiments, but I haven't had too much success. Would you be willing to share any experience you have with halftones?To see lots of pictures and see what I mean look here (too much effort to try and re-upload all these images):…See More

"Absolutely, Barbara is right. We do consider the proof presses to be the be all and end of cylinders now a days because they are the more commonly acquired for small shops. I worked for two years in the Minneapolis College of Art and Design print…"

About Me:
My name is Danielle Feliciano and I've been printing for about five years. I apprenticed with Barry Moser of Pennyroyal Caxton Press and Chip Schilling of Indulgence Press before moving back to Virginia Beach to start my own small press. My true love is fine press book design, but I also do some commercial work printing invitations and stationary.

Open for Commissions and Friends!

The Letterpress Community is a little, shall we say, 'light' in Hampton Roads. I'd love to meet new printers, get more work, and acquire more equipment. If you're nearby say 'Hi', I'd love to show you the shop and if you have a cylinder press you just don't need, give me a ring, because I'd love to find a little proof press for the shop.

Things I still want to do/learn:

How to do edge painting

Print on some coasters

Find a press for and learn to diecut
