IT AIN'T JUST FOR THE FINER FOLK YA'LL!
Letterpress is a very old art form that combines know-how, forethought and lots of practice to pull off one-of-a-kind pieces in small print runs.
Abakis collaborates with other musicians to letterpress high quality works of art for their merch tables. She has worked out of The Arm Studio in Brooklyn, NY. As far as materials: she favors Stumptown Printers for their easy-to-fold 100% recycled CD, VINYL, and Tape Covers. To get your original artwork made into a polymer plate for pressing, she recommends Boxcar Press for fast turn-around and high-quality service. Abe makes artifacts you can be proud of, without having to choose between bare bones DIY methods and mass production. (How many chapbooks do you REALLY want to type by hand?!)
