What's Happening in Our Studios: T.J. Cichecki and Abe Garcia in Letterpress

Abe: Handle up
Handle in motion
Handle down
T.J. at the guillotine paper cutter
T.J. and Abe are starting a design firm and will be printing business cards and coasters. Workhorse is the name of their outfit, with Instagram handle "wrkhrs." T.J. first heard about Pyramid Atlantic downtown, and discovered our letterpress studio when he took a class here with Melanie Karlins (Grey Moggie Press). Now he shares studio space with Melanie in Capitol Hill.
Abe is new to Pyramid Atlantic, but not new to printing. He is a MFA '12 graduate of MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore) and also self taught. Both he and T.J. are freelance designers.
In addition to letterpress, today also included a step into the bindery to use the guillotine paper cutter. T.J. recommends Pyramid Atlantic for specialized printing, which is not easily found elsewhere. And do you know about the Pyramid Atlantic Happy Hours? Along with the fun, that's when all the studios are available for two hours, for less money.
