Book Description

7 Feb 2011
Stop letting pesky obstacles keep you from printing it your way: after all it's your wedding invitations, your band t-shirts, and even your deck of cards, isnt it? Print Workshop grabs your hand and leads you through a crash-course on printing with techniques, materials and surfaces you never dreamed you could take on at home. It can be as simple as carving a potato or as complex as a chemical bath, but no matter the skill level, these printing techniques never require expensive equipment or lots of space. Everything in this book is easily do-able at home; and every project features Yellow Owl Workshop's sought-after motifs and Christine's art-school style illustrations. Unlike the vanilla-flavoured competition, this book is full of original ideas for things to make and use. There's jar labels for your canning and pickling needs. There's pillows inspired by YOW's famous city and bicycle stamps. There's everything from a stationary set (complete with wax seal) to a dartboard, from a deck of cards to a fine art print.

Product Description


"Print Workshop radically transcends conventional printmaking guides. Schmidt's witty, conversational approach illuminates one graphic project after the next, from pinprick stationery to royal wax seals and jar decals." -"Chantal Lamers, San Francisco Chronicle""[Print Workshop] celebrates the imperfect, the humanness of printing and the beauty in that. Geared for the home printer, the materials and tools are simple and easy to find at a local craft store. The book is a great way to dive into hand printing, an amazing starting point for customizing household items and a really nice guide for bringing more life into your every day. The aesthetic of the projects is incredibly current and inspiring and still approachable enough to feel comfortable attacking them on your own." -"Laure Joliet, Apartment Therapy" "I've always loved the voice and style that Christine [Schmidt] has brought to the printing community. Her style is unique and fresh and I'm so excited to see that celebrated and translated into book form. Her book will teach you how to roll up your sleeves and create fantastic home, fashion and accessory-based projects. I love that the book keeps budget in mind and will give you a wide range of ideas that won't drain your wallet. Whether you're looking to create a custom t-shirt, deck of cards (my favorite) or dartboard, Christine has you covered (including all the basics tools and terminology you'll need for printing)." " -Grace Bonney, Design Sponge""A thoroughly engaging entry into the world of personalization through print." -"Dwell Magazine ""Artists who love what they do are infectious: They motivate the rest of us to give creativity a shot. Just talk with Christine Schmidt, who fairly gushes about her printmaking efforts, both in a phone interview and in the pages of "Print Workshop: Hand-printing Techniques & Truly Original Projects." -"Associated Press""While the range of projects is impressive, the real beauty of t

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab 15 Dec 2011
I've really wanted to start doing some printing, but been put off by thinking that I couldn't do it. This book has been perfect for me. The techniques start simply, the instructions are clear and the ideas are really inspiring. As it's an American book, the exact products aren't always easy to find, but there are some great web suppliers for all that you need. I'd thoroughly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have 21 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a painter I essentially love the resulting flatness of the printing technique and was interested in the craft side of the picture-making process. I searched for a book that would introduce me into making my own prints and I must admit, I chose this one mostly because of the cover design. But the whole book is as beautifully designed and illustrated as the cover! This is a must for any aspiring printer, be it just a home-made stamp maker or an advanced lino or wood block printer.

If you enjoy printing by hand then I highly recommend this book. It has beautifully illustrated print examples and clear instructions for how to create the prints shown in the book, and it lists the tools and materials you need. Be warned: you'll want to get stuck in straight away!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Such a nicely illustrated and informative book with lots of different print processes to try. It is American though, so UK buyers be aware that some things might not be so readily available to us if you want to try things out.
