DWRI Letterpress in Providence, Rhode Island and AIGA Rhode Island recently held a Mohawk Maker event featuring Mohawk paper and letterpress holiday card printing. The event was a big hit, featuring founder of the shop Dan Wood himself, Lee Moody of Mohawk, and lots of custom letterpress type!

The participants gleefully letterpressed on Mohawk Via in Scarlet, Mohawk Loop in Thai Gold, Mohawk Via in Cyan, and several other colors and grades to create custom cards on the shop’s Vandercooks, Kluges, and other letterpress machines. Event photos and the final products appear below.
