Letterpress is special to me, since I have worked at the Gutenberg museum in Mainz, Germany, the city where I had lived for eight years until I moved to the States. And I am not lying if I tell you, the Gutenberg museum is one of the nicest museums on printing history and books arts you will ever find!
So back to my business cards, since they would have a front and a back side, each card had to go through the press twice; I was using three colors for my design and you can only print one color at a time. My goal was to print 300 cards and I printed two cards at a time (on one sheet of paper which at the end had to be cut down). That means on the whole I had to feed the press about 900 times. You have no idea how much my arm hurt afterwards, but it was totally worth it! I am totally in love with the result!
