printing at home

I've been dreaming of having my own printing press ever since I did my independent study using a Vandercook printing press my last semester of college. And since I visited the type truck this fall... well that only fed the flame.


Above was the print I made while in the type truck. It was so amazing to work with a press again. Have a look Movable Type blog. The owner is SO nice, and her work is awesome. It's definitely worth the drive if the truck is ever in your area.



To have a printing press in my home? I would swoon.  This drop dead goregous space is for Studio on Fire. (They do gorgeous work btw. Check them out if you have time.)


But for now I'm looking into printing methods that aren't so... heavy.


So here's a round up of at home printing methods I've found. I know there's tons more floating around the internet, and if you happen to have some links that you think I would be gaga over (you'll most likely be right) please leave a comment.
