Have you ever wondered where the expression “mind your Ps and Qs” comes from? Experience the magic of letterpress printing at the Wells Book Arts Center — one of the premier printing and book arts studios in the country — just a ten-minute walk down Main Street from the Inns of Aurora. Stand among some of the rarest printing assets in the world, including an exceptional collection of antique wood and metal type. After a brief introduction to the history and craft of letterpress printing, hand-set your own name or contact information in metal type with the help of one of the Center’s expert printers. After your design is completed, learn to print your own set of a modern take on Victorian calling cards. This two-hour experience for two to four guests includes:

Personalized, hands-on printing workshop
Two hours of instruction
50 personalized calling cards per person
