hammer press - kansas city, mo

http://hammerpress.net

Hammerpress was founded in 1994 by Brady Vest while extending the four year program into the four and a half year program at the Kansas City Art Institute. With a fascination of letterpress and a completely motorless Chandler and Price Platen press, he began printing CD packages and LP packages for poor and penniless art school rock and roll friends.

Now with several presses (all of which have motors, thankfully), hundreds of drawers of lead type, Hammerpress operates with a small crew creating everything from exquisite and unusual wedding invitations to custom artwork for national restaurant chains, CD packaging, corporate identity, posters and art prints, as well as an every growing line of letterpress stationery products.

vincent from project runway 3 and the weather

we may be on the back end of the heart of summer in the time of global climate change and it may still be 80+ degrees with a fair amount of humidity outside - but i am starting to feel the subtle coolness underneath the sunny heat...autumn - it is 'nigh :)

i ride across the river on my 49cc scooter and i feel like vincent from project runway 3 :) he was pretty much a total douchebag, but the giddiness with which he proclaimed that his own work "turned him on" is kinda how i feel about autumn :)

i want to print!

probably saturday...
i carved 3 new blocks this week to print with the dress :)

• i need to acquire some materials - wall paper and dress patterns
• i already have vellum and might want some dirty looking paper - maybe tea stained
• i need blue ink - accidentally bought purple thinking it was royal blue but tried it with yellow and it turned to a brownish grey...neither delicate nor feminine!

heather bought my first print on etsy :) i get conflicted about selling art to friends...i hope it wasn't a pity buy :)

my grandpa's 90th birthday party is this weekend too...

so many things to do to...
