Letterpressing Inserts for The Jealous Sound

Will from HYMY Industries and I spent several hours this weekend printing lyric inserts for The Jealous Sound LPs. We’re letterpressing them using our vintage manual Vandercook No. 3 proof press machine. The paper that we’re using is from French Paper, one of America’s smallest paper mills located in Michigan and family run since 1871.

The Jealous Sound update

The Jealous Sound continue on their tour this month, be sure to check them out. They were just in Philadelphia for a sold out show…

Will from HYMY Industries started letterpressing inserts for A Gentle Reminder LPs tonight on our Vandercook letterpress. I’ll be helping out a bit under his fine guidance later this weekend. The pink vinyl LPs will have blue inserts and the blue vinyl LPs will have pink inserts, both on thick French Paper cover stock.

Covers have been printed and our on their way to the vinyl pressing plant. Test pressings are expected any day now with final vinyl to be shipping shortly (2 weeks or so) after the test pressings are approved.
