Day 20

Mr. Marty Robbins


WHAT I DID
  • Helped set type for a Marty Robbins restrike
  • Locked in my Christmas card design into the front press
  • Printed 500 of my Christmas cards
  • Posed for pictures while printing on the front press (there was a journalist conference in town)

This part is so satisfying to me– ink spreading over the roller


WHAT I LEARNED

  • Fridays on Broadway are busy! I never realized it as much until working on the front press– you interact with a lot of the customers up there.
  • How to cycle through colors on the press– because I was printing so many cards, each time I inked the press, I jumped to the next color in the rainbow so that they would gradually transition
