PERSONALIZED NOTECARD Class

Perfect for the creative group - every participant will get to choose their own flat notecard design from our wood type, lead type, and vintage images. The design could consist of a few images, a word or two, or a few letters. These would be set up in our vintage 1942 Vandercook letterpress and the participant would get to print 10 copies of their flat notecards, and choose envelopes to coordinate.

4-11 people, 1.5-2 hours, $35 per person

12-30 people, 2-3 hours, $25 per person

30-60 people, 2-3 hours, $15 per person

 

Pull-a-POSTER CLASS

Does your group have a favorite saying? Are you getting together for an annual event? Let us design an 8x10 poster for you, using our wood type and lead type, and let your guests each hand-ink and pull 4 prints of that design to take home. Some ideas would be "I Love Columbus," "Home is Where the Heart Is," "Go Bucks," etc.... We would then lead the group in a mini-bookbinding workshop where each participant would get to bind a small softcover journal with the cover and pages of their choice. ($25 per person, 1-2 hours)

4-11 people, 1-2 hours, $25 per person

WOOD TYPE JOURNAL CLASS

Combining letterpress printing and bookbinding, this class would allow each guest to choose a few words, images, or letters to print on their choice of coverstock, print their book cover, and then attach it to a perfect-bound blank set of pages to create your own custom softcover notebook. Great for gifts or to keep for yourself!

The design could consist of a few images, a word or two, or a few letters. These would be set up in our vintage 1942 Vandercook letterpress, and you may choose envelopes to coordinate. Perfect for baby showers, bridal showers, or man showers!

FAQ

Q: Can I bring in food and/or drink?

A: Yes, please! We have a water cooler and large sink, but don't have a fridge/freezer available, so plan accordingly. 

 

Q: Is there a "clean room" for opening gifts and eating?

A: The classroom is large, and composing tables can be covered to make clean areas, but there are no other rooms to use for separate parts of your party.

 

Q: May I bring in decorations?

A: Yes! We recommend easy-to-set-up items such as balloons and centerpieces, as opposed to streamers. We aim to keep the tables and chairs clean and open for your guests, but the areas around the presses and type all have a historical "patina" to them that may not lend itself well to white linens. 

 

Q: Where should my guests park?

A: There is a large public parking lot just behind our building, including 3-hour parking spaces and long-term parking spaces, all free. Please do not leave valuables in the car, and lock your doors.

 

Q: Where does my party enter the building?

A: You may enter from the front (during our business hours) or through our back door, accessible through the back lobby off the parking lot. The handicap entrance is through the front door, off High street. Please let us know if you or your guests need to use it during closed hours and we would be happy to open up for you.

 

Q: Is the classroom/party room private?

A: Our classroom is a large room in the back of our space but, as we are a production studio, our employees will come and go. However, we make every effort to give you your own space and not book 2 parties in the classroom area at the same time.
