Hello :)

I'm so excited that I found this group.
I have always loved letterpress stuff...and I will soon be taking my first course.
And...bigger news, I will soon be buying my first press :)

It should look something like this :)

Thanks for including me here.

I'm looking forward to learning, browsing...…

You'll be thrilled with Margaret Lock's course. I took it several years ago and learned so much! I'm still very much a part-time, hobby printer with lots more to learn, but love every minute I get to spend with my press.

Marlaine, I've never met Margaret Lock, but I've heard she's amazing! She is really well-respected as both an artist and craftsperson. You will learn a lot from her.

yes, I''m from Toronto too. I'm fairly new to letterpress. I took my first class with Akemi (Kozo Studio) in Feb, then a few weeks later took a class with Tanya (Snap & Tumble). I've taken a second class with Akemi since then. I'd love to have a Vandercook but due to lack of space I settled on the Adana 5 x 8. I've only had it a few weeks and I'm struggling with getting it to print properly. I need to have at least one full day when I have nothing to do but work with it.
I'm assuming you're buying your press from Don?

Marlaine - I forgot to mention, if you're using the boxcar base system, we found a polymer plate supplier in Mississauga who is just as good and you don't have to pay duty. Check out Aries Flexographic and ask for Donna. Where are you thinking of taking your courses? Offering workshops is something we've been toying with for a while...

Thanks for your wonderful comment! Good luck with the courses and good luck with your first press. Don't be discouraged if the first few impressions are less than perfect. Figuring out how to make them perfect is half the fun.

Hi Marlaine, You'll find a lot of letterpress people are graphic designers, such a natural combination. So many are women, too! I see you are in Pickering. It' nice to see more letterpress making it's way into Canada. If you are looking for a press Don Black Linecasting, in Scarborough, is a terrific place to check.

Good luck!
