heart-stopping registration

Occasionally someone will ask me if letterpress printing is difficult. My typical response is something like, "No, but some jobs are more complicated than others." If the conversation continues, I always end up explaining the process of registration.

The wedding invitation I printed this weekend is a great example of the importance of accuracy when using two or more colors right up against one another. Since each color requires a separate run through the press, it's often a bit hair-raising to line them up perfectly. Katherine chose great ink colors here.
