Say I Love You with Letterpress Printing
It is the time of year for Valentine’s cards. Some of those will be coming from a local woman who is keeping the tradition of letterpress printing alive, one piece of paper at a time.
Sarah Ridgley, owner of Pheasant Press in Fort Smith, AR, is standing in front of a humming machine. It’s the sound of keeping a dying art alive as Ridgley prints cards which read “Love.” She does so using letterpress printing, churning out hand fed and hand laid typed paper.
