I went into the Letterpress studio on Saturday to make cards for 2010. I went in not knowing what I was going to do but 2010 was obviously the theme. I used the vast array of wood type and just began playing around. First with the large FUTURE text because we all know 2010 is officially when flying cars make their debut and flying cars = The Future! Also we’re in the decade that Marty McFly arrives from the past. Can you believe we’re finally going to get hoverboards!?
Anyways, I played around with different colors and varied the amount of ink on press. Double sided of course. I then looked around for some numbered type and laid that out to overprint. I love the layered look! So fun. I then took the master sheets and cut them up into cards to send out. I couldn’t resist keeping some master sheets to hang on my wall though. Printed all on Crane Lettra Pearl white.
