Custom Stationery
Bowne Printers Workshop
At Bowne Printers
Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 1:00PM

Bowne Printers
209 Water Street
New York, NY 10038

This three-and-a-half-hour workshop introduces participants to typesetting and letterpress printing small runs of custom work. Students choose from a selection of the Museum’s vintage lead type to design their own personalized stationery. Our team of printers guide participants through the process of setting type, proofing on our Vandercook cylinder press, fine-tuning designs, and printing a final run on our 19th-century tabletop platen press. Participants learn how to operate the presses themselves, and each person goes home with twenty-five personal stationery items. In this three-and-a-half hour intensive workshop, you will engage in the process of producing a custom set of stationery. Set type, mix ink, cut paper, and print a beautiful edition of 35 notecards on a 19th century printing press. This workshop is great for all skill levels, and is intended to engage in every part of the printing process, we even teach you how to clean the press at the end!
