If at first you don't succeed, try try again

Artist Anne Dykers has been working with us for a while on an artist book. The concept was solid, the papermaking-hand beaten gampi, formed in long horizontal sheets-went off without a hitch, and then she was ready to print her text. Oh boy....
She tried a couple of different methods of printing text, but ran into some problems. You see, because gampi paper contains long texturous fibers, printing can be tricky. It can cause uneven printing if you screenprint on it, or damage type if you letterpress print on it.
So Anne looked to our digital associate, Franc Rosario, who helped her inkjet print the text on her paper. It worked like a charm! Those crafty two even made a template, so the text would print exactly where Anne wanted it.look how clear and crisp the printing turned out!
