Cranky Pressman: The Coasters

The self-promotional designs featuring senior citizens of a beach community, were done in collaboration with Parliament of Owls to launch their new letterpress imprintable die-cut coaster line titled The Coasters. The coasters were letterpress printed in Pantone 325 Green-Blue and Pantone 142 Orange on 60 point Pulp Board stock. See the rest on the Cranky Pressman’s blog.

Cranky Pressman: AIGA Cleveland Cranky Camp

On 3.27.2010, AIGA Cleveland and Cranky Pressman held Cranky Camp. Cranky Camp is a 6 hour letterpress printing workshop where visitors are allowed to dig into wood and metal type, digbats and cuts, to make themselves a poster. Some of the results can be found on the Cranky Pressman’s Flickr page. Very cool to see people opening their shops for all that are interested. Thank you to Keith and Jamie Berger for providing this educational opportunity to AIGA Cleveland. You rock.
