Wayzgoose Keepsake Envelopes

We have been organizing like maniacs getting ready to host the APA Wayzgoose. We had a good logistics meeting today and then got to impromptu collaborate on printing the large keepsakes envelopes. (Conference registrants get a variety of letterpress keepsakes!)

While the brain trust was composing a very cool idea for the wayzgoose envelopes, my contribution was printing a blue stripe as the first layer. Will post the final envelopes once the wayzgoose starts. Gotta have some surprises!

Letterpress Revival in Arizona

The New Times, Claire Lawton did a cool article about Sky Shipley and the Skyline Type Foundry! We had fun printing the cover for them.

Here is a link to the story:

Here is a link to a slideshow with tons of letterpress related photos:

Photos from printing the cover.

 Lots of wood type.
