Floor Model Platen Press Printing

View of ink disk and platen on C&P floor model platen press

Yesterday the studio at work was free and so I spent the day printing on the Chandler & Price (C&P) floor model platen press. It was my first day printing on that press since I learned how to use it and, while it took me a while to get set up, everything went smoothly and now I love that press.

I found some great images in the type collection and made these 'imperative cards'for my up-and-coming etsy shop.

I came across this scene on Jones Street by the San Francisco Art Institute. I never eat McDonald's, and this didn't make me crave it, it just made me smile. Not because I like littering, or anything like that and, perhaps it's evil, subliminal, corporate marketing but I really feel like there is something strangely innocent about this.
