Press Check features a collection of interviews featuring five local Portland based, female letterpress printers. After realizing I had spent three years working on the digital side of letterpress without much knowledge as to what went into printing I decided to do some research. Light research on letterpress lead me to realize the entire print shop at work was filled with women. From there I began reaching out to local printers of all sizes in hopes that I could learn form these people and get a better understanding of what exactly I’m designing for. Between the studio visits and hands on printing I learned so much about the local print scene, the history of printing and another group of artists in Portland.
