5x3s’s (or 12.7×7.62’s)

5×3″ / 127×76.2mm (delete as appropriate) prints I am making for a “print without press” (printSANSpress) project I am working on in collaboration with screen printer Marsh Shaw at Mission Grafica.

The idea is to make and document ways of printing without a huge (and expensive) press, especially techniques that educators can make with kids without too much preparation.

We hacked a credit card machine…
…and dye cutter to print these. Next is to try out using a pasta making machine.

  1. Oh wow great idea to use an old credit card machine and dye cutter for printing! We’ve got both of those things lying around at Creativity. Be good to give it a try.

    1. yay! the credit card machine is a bit stiff -and you REALLY have to hack it. So I would recommend using the dye cutter -as you only have to unscrew some of the bedding, and and more bedding (we used paper -but I imagine you’d have some felt in Creativity?). I’d recommend it -it is pretty cool to have a mini press!

      I just need to get my hands on a pasta machine…hmmm mass email out needed me thinks…xx
