Make with Mohawk Print Set 03: Crane's Lettra + Letterpress = Design Inspiration
Crane’s Lettra fueled the rebirth of artisanal letterpress printing.
Recognized for its lush cotton surface and handmade quality, Lettra is the industry’s first choice for printing processes like letterpress, engraving, blind embossing, and foil stamping.
Innovation was inevitable when Mohawk acquired Crane’s Stationery in 2018, combining two groups of smart and passionate craftspeople. Make with Mohawk Print Set 03 is among the first expressions of these two families of makers joining together. The third in a three-part series pairing specific printing processes with select Mohawk papers, Print Set 03 celebrates the release of an expanded and refreshed line of Crane Cotton Papers by pairing Crane’s Lettra with one, two, and three color letterpress printing.
For Print Set 03, three heavy weights of Crane’s Lettra were chosen to serve the vision of three featured artists:
If you’re feeling inspired (and we hope you are), you can try out any of the three Make with Mohawk Print Set combinations, including Crane’s Lettra + Letterpress, for a limited time through the Make with Mohawk Printshop. The Printshop, powered by TOG.ink, is a pop-up online maker space that offers designers the opportunity to create their own work using the same papers and processes demonstrated in the Make with Mohawk Print Set series. The Printshop is temporary, but the tactile impact of Crane’s Lettra and Letterpress is long-lasting. Experiment with paper and process and expand the possibilities of your next project.
Make with Mohawk Print Set 03 was designed by Hybrid Design of San Francisco, CA and skillfully printed by Fey Printing of Wisconsin Rapids, WI with prints printed by The Occasions Group in Mankato, MN.
Behind every great partnership is a story, and in 2018 we began a new chapter with the acquisition of Crane Stationery.
