Do antique typefaces and old-fashioned printing techniques make your heart beat a little faster? If so, then hopefully the movie on will inspire you to throw your laptop aside, and get printing – the old-fashioned way. Amsterdam-based graphic lab Grafisch Werk Amsterdam, who made the movie, run a series of workshops where people can design and print their very own poster or business cards, or even make an artwork using linoleum cuts and an etching press. Of course, Amsterdam may be a bit far for most of you to go to make an impression, so before you thrown down your computer, use it to find something in your area or for more inspiration… Happy printing!
