November 18, 2011 – At the AS220 Printshop in Providence, RI, Colleen Ellse, letterpress printer and “boss lady”, as she humorously calls herself, of Lovely Design and Letterpress, begins the process of printing her holiday gift tags by choosing ink colors. Ellse flips through a swatch book of Pantone brand inks, settling on blue and gold for printing. If she were printing custom work for a customer, she would ask for an object of the right colour so that she may match her ink mixture as perfectly as possible. Photo by Sarah Mongeau-Birkett.
