CreateTWO is a design and letterpress studio in my hometown, Auburn, AL. The owner is Kevin Smith, and Auburn University graduate. One of the most exciting and unique things that CreateTWO is doing with their shop is combining offset lithography and screen printing with their letterpressed works. I love their willingness to do an excessive number of runs to get overlapping effects and use as many colors as possible.

The Round Up Show poster was printed offset first, then letterpressed.

Some of this type is veneer, and the rest is pantographed. Note the depth differences in the D and the U.

I want to thank Kevin for his hospitality and willingness to let me hover around the studio. I never imagined there would be such a great shop in Auburn!

Be sure to explore their website and check out the video of the printing of the Love your Heart Run / Crank your Heart Ride poster. Guess who’s operating the press?!
