What goes into an Old Try letterpress print?
Love. History. Cut hands. And a little bit of cussing.
Wooden & Worn
We have drawers of 100+ year old wooden (and lead) display type. It has been used to print rodeo posters and labor union broadsides and newspapers. It has aged like a champ - picking up dents and dings that give the characters character.
Linoleum & Magnesium
Each color gets a plate. And 95% of those plates are carved by hand. Some have fine line work (or just obnoxious repeating elements the designer insists on) and those get machined. It isn’t quick or cheap or easy, and that’s just how we like it.
Beautiful design & high quality
Received this as a gift, and I'm thrilled with it. I'm proud to be able to hang something that represents my state well, and the design looks simply fantastic. High quality, to the point that I purchased another Old Try print when I saw how good it looked. Would recommend.Oxford, Miss
Five stars and nothing less
This was our second purchase from The Old Try. Their prints make for such a warm welcome in our Atlanta home. Each product is made in the US and made with intention. The company (Micah) is super thorough in communicating order & shipping information (and awesome follow-up emails). Love this'un and all the rest! Thanks again!Auburn, Ala
