Our friend, Chris Fritton (@itinerantprinter) works differently than most letterpress printers. Hosted by studios all over the country—soon to be all over the globe—Fritton packs only ink and paper, allowing him to constantly learn and experiment.
.
We managed to lock down an interview with Chris between stops at shops and pick his brain to find out how he re-imagines materials and processes to keep creating on the cutting edge. Link in bio.

The qualities of paper can be inherently powerful. They are rich design elements to be debated, explored and refined to bring design intent to life.
.
@hungryworkshop designed and letterpress printed this whimsical invitation for a party at Black Rabbit Farm, created by @thebiggrouphospitalityagency. As a nod to the location, they animated a hopping rabbit with an analogue lenticular paper sleeve.
.
The invitation itself is digitally printed on the outside and letterpress printed on the inside with a split-fountain gradient on Mohawk Superfine Eggshell White 120 Cover (324 gsm).

#TheMohawkShow is about more than recognition—we want to help amazing designers create more amazing work. The Mohawk Show Maker Grants give back more than just a line on your resume, they give you the opportunity to make more for making’s sake, not for a client’s RFP.
.
We are excited to announce that @neuhauspress is one of The Mohawk Show’s Maker Grants. Neu Haus Press has produced letterpress tour posters for noteworthy acts such as Billie Eilish and Death Cab for Cutie, but the studio is most known for their Alpha-Blox series. By re-envisioning the font in large woodblock form and by printing on his Vandercook 232P, Neu Huas Press has created billboards as large as 14x20ft. .
Could Neu Haus’ next billboard feature your design? Enter your work into The Mohawk Show today for a chance to win.
