طريقة شراء اسهم بشركات اجنبية مضمون ربحها A couple of weeks ago we welcomed the great and the good into our workshop as part of the annual Cockpit Arts Summer Open studios. We were running demonstrations on our, lovingly restored, treadle platen press; showing people the basics of how it works, the principles of letterpress and then letting the brave ones step up to the plate and have a go. We were printing greyboard beer mats with a composed design from our usual collection and we thought it’d be nice to break out the super bright fluorescent orange for the event. Fun and games all round and no lost fingers either! Plus it was a chance to show off our new range of wedding stationery and personalised stationery sets.

There were our new generic Save The Date cards as well which can be used for anything from weddings to birthdays to picnics. Finally there were our two new limited edition prints; If It Is To Be and Even The Smallest Crank. Both were printed on our flatbed proofing press and were composed from our larger woodblock type.

So we have returned from our escapades last weekend, having talked to ten train loads of passengers, given out hundreds of free postcard prints and developed a new found respect for the staff who had to push those trolleys all day everyday!

It started bright and early on the train from Victoria. With our modified trolley all cleaned up, branded and packed full of equipment, we set off to Brighton. Unsure of how the public would respond to being offered a free letterpress, limited edition print rather than a sandwich and a cup of tea, we were pleasantly surprised as many people were thoroughly interested on their way to the beach. Information on the Village of Type, Ditchling Museum and the Brighton Festival was dished out aplenty along with dozens of prints too. Arriving at Brighton there was just enough time for a coffee re-fuel before we were off again back to London.

All in all we did ten trips on mostly busy to packed trains full of people heading to the beach or the Brighton Festival itself, about 600 prints were pulled and dished out and we had chats with tons of people, introducing many to Ditchling Museum and village.

Letterpress On Board!

Having just completed one madcap event involving printing with a steamroller, we’re straight onto the next one this weekend; Letterpress on Board!

Once again in conjunction with Ditchling Museum and as part of their Village of Type celebration of 100 years of the Johnston typeface, we are setting ourselves up to do some live letterpress printing on a train. To coincide with the start of the Brighton Festival this weekend, we’ll be taking an Adana 8×5, fitted to a specially modified trolley, on several trips between London Victoria and Brighton. We’ll offering the public a chance to have a go at printing and take away a specially designed postcard for free.

SORT Adana 85

We created the design itself with a mixture of regular Gill Sans, and some of the more diverse variations such as Gill Sans Cameo and Gill Sans Light Shadowed, from our collection of lead type.

So if you’re heading down to Brighton for the festival this weekend, or up to London for that matter, and fancy printing one of these postcards, then look out for us on the following trains:

Press On! At the Big Steam Print

After many days spent digging, scraping and carving our way through 1m square of lino, we were ready for the Big Steam Print last Saturday to help celebrate 100 years of the Johnston typeface and the Village of Type in collaboration with Ditchling Museum. Setting up at the fantastic London Transport Museum depot in Acton, we were greeted with a solid toot from the whistle of the steam roller, all the way from Amberley. Some of the other groups had been printing already that morning with fine results from New North Press, James Brown, East London Printmakers, Red Hot Press, Jealous Gallery, and of course Lucky Budgie who came up with the whole idea.

We got down to the task of inking, which took a fair while by hand, especially since we need a good thick coat and only had time for two prints. Inking complete, we set the lino down in the path of the steam roller, followed by the paper and a protective mat. Then it was time to print! Naturally we both had to have a go riding on the footplate, (so we could properly supervise the process of course) as 12.5 tons of pressure was applied to our lino. The unveiling was a bit nerve wracking but the results were great, as you can see below with astonished onlookers Ruth and Brendan from iamacrylic.

All in all it was a great day out and excellent fun doing a project like this, it’s not very often you get the chance to print with a steam roller! We’d like to say a huge thank you to Ditchling Museum, Lucky Budgie and the London Transport Muesum for organising it, plus of course everyone who backed it on the ArtFund / Art Happens site; as it wouldn’t have happened without you all.

The prints themselves will be on display as part of an exhibition at the Phoenix Gallery in Brighton on the 6th – 21st of August. Keep an eye on the Ditchling Museum’s website as well for news of the other Village of Type events that are happening.

Follow up from Manmade & a New Website

So Manmade has been and gone and we had a great time down at the Truman Brewery, meeting plenty of new customers and other craftsmen (and crafts-ladies too). We had a pretty good spot and decorated our bit of wall with our alphabetical ephemera. Our have-a-go notebook customisation workshop did well as always with a wide variety of people lining up to try their hand at printing with the Adana.

The other interactive events were very popular as well; with some amazing scissor skills from the general public at Mr Wingate’s screen printing workshop, and a veritable crowd of eager acrylic-fanciers for the jewellery workshop with our chums Ruth and Brendan from I Am Acrylic.

In other news, as you may have noticed, we’ve given the website a bit of a (late) spring clean and an update, with plenty of shiny new images and integrated the blog in here as well. We’ll be adding a bunch of other improvements over the next couple of months but it’s nice to have a bit of a fresh look!

We had a sterling time down at the Ditchling museum last Saturday, helping them celebrate their first birthday. It was a delightfully sunny day and we had a fine turn out of print and Eric Gill enthusiasts. Below are some shots from the event;

We printed a vast number of personalised bookplates during the event, although I think we may have forgotten to reset the counter before we arrived.

Finally, packed up and heading home, this was possibly the most idyllic (and slightly terrifying) driveway to a staff car park we have ever encountered!

We’d like to offer a big thank you to the Ditchling Museum for inviting us to take part in their celebrations, and we wish them all the best for the next year too.
