I got my plates made up the other day at Imagination Graphics. I'm glad I checked everything as (LITERALLY) the last second because my QR codes didn't work!!! Thankfully I was able to fix them in time.
I spent the last two days printing, and got everything done. And let me tell you, 2 colour plates x 160 sheets on our press in 2 days, not to mention chopping them all in half and signing the limited edition of 12 - is not an easy feat!!!
Here's a bit of a documentation of the process:
Choosing my ink colour for the fountain (and making sure the middle mixes to a nice purple):
Putting the ink on the inking rollers:
Getting the plate all ready and properly dampened:
First print, colour no.1:
Day Two: Black Ink
Plate no. 2: Black plate
Sorting out some "too much water" issues:
Drying on print racks:
Sorting out some registration issues:
And some videos to explain the whole process (excuse the dodgy "self-camera" work)
*Images & videos all mine.
And that's the printing.
Website work has been a whole new world for me. I've never built a wordpress before and suddenly I've had to look up things like CSS codes. I think it's looking pretty good though! Don't you?
Thanks to Lucas Ihlein for all the help.
