Typestache Poster: Behind the Scenes

Screen-printing is a new technique for us at Old Tom Foolery and we think it's pretty cool. Our Minneapolitan printer-friend Mike Ritter has been printing our Typestache posters, which were designed by our San Franciscan friend, Tor Weeks. It's a sort of merging of our old and new worlds, if you will.

Anywho, Mike was kind enough to give us a behind-the-scenes tour of during his last Typestache poster printing session. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing his shop and watching the posters come to life. The full set of photos from our tour can be viewed here.

**This project was brought to you under a collaborative effort from: Tor Weeks, Old Tom Foolery, Henley Mpls, Chux Screen Printing, Northwest Graphic Supply Co., Anchor Paper, the guy who gave away the free vacuum we use on the poster press, John Ritter's mechanical knowhow - elbow grease - and tools, and Saint Augustine of Hippo (the Patron Saint of Printers).
