I have printed a few letterpress pieces for Rachel Maddow and her partner Susan Mikula. Each project is a lot of fun. Early this spring I was contacted by their designer, my good friend Michael Kusek, to help out on a rush baby shower invitation. Another printer had dropped the ball.
The copy arrived late Friday afternoon and I stayed until the evening to cast all the copy in hot lead on our Ludlow Model M type caster. Saturday I printed the first color, and Sunday the second. The invites were trimmed and ready for Monday morning.
Michael picked up the invites and texted Rachel and Susan a picture. They loved the work and the turnaround time, but there was a problem. Over the weekend the baby decided to join the party! The copy on the invitations said "parents-to-be" and now they wanted to reprint with "new parents".
They sent both invites in one envelope as a joke.
