Ledbetter Process, Step 3

The Printing.

Cutting the paper.

Inking up the press for the gold detail on the card.

Printing the gold.

Gold layer for the print.

After printing the gold for both pieces, the press gets washed out, and after a little break the black gets inked up.

Black plate for the card goes on.

Printed cards.

The gold on the print wasn't dry enough to put down the black layer, so it waits for tomorrow, as well as the blind debossing. The card will be scored and trimmed and totally finished other than hand numbering and signing by the artist.
