Printing the Cigar Poster

It all started when James, on one of his regular excursions to the cigar shop to get boxes to store printing stuff in, wound up with this wood insert — probably for some fancy gift box — of the various classic cigars. He resolved to print it.

He sanded it down and made it as even as possible, and we spent Friday coming up with a poster for it. I was hoping for bigger type, but when you're dealing with realities of having enough letters to set what you want, you deal with what you got.

It was decided, though, that we need another layer of artwork. We broke to figure out what that could be.


Live on Etsy

The poster that James and I have been working on is now for sale in the new 12 Tons of Letterpress Etsy store — along with some other prints from James. Got few more things to list, and we'll be working on a new poster tomorrow.
