Experiments in Printmaking
For a while now, I’ve been making my own business cards. I like making my own cards as I’m able to make them with paper of my choice – usually a watercolour paper. This means I can give away little watercolour sketches or scribbles.
However as of late my printer has not been sealing the toner very well on the watercolour stock, so the prints have been coming out rather poorly. So I thought I’d have a go at engraving plates using my laser cutting machine and taking relief prints off those plates. I’ve had pretty mixed results so far. I don’t think it’ll work in the long run for something like business cards, but I’m interested now to see about making gift cards or similar using the same ideas.
