Printing Greeting Cards

I spent Thursday of this week at the Baird Center in South Orange printing greetings cards for my Etsy store on this great Vandercook 20 Rigid Bed Roller Series Proofing Press. I use a magnesium plate mounted on wood, rubber base plus ink and print on Stonehenge paper. I love this ink as it has no smell and can easily be cleaned up with cooking oil. No nasty fumes! The print on the drum is “masegba.” I will post some more pics soon, to show the process in more depth. Happy Valentine’s day!
