A Southern Print Shop North of Mason & Dixon’s.

 

By / / There’s something to be said about our “craft” – of putting words and pictures together to get messages and ideas out there into the world – and how in this fast-paced digital age, there’s a certain mystique, romance and care that may or may not have gone missing. So, leave it to two Southern transplants who do digital by day (at Arnold & SapientNitro) to slow things down and go analog “to make things that connect people to places.” How exactly? Well, with a longing for their home down South, they started Old Try and began making letterpress posters the old-fashioned way – “on old machines with moveable type and wood blocks, just like what would have been used a hundred years ago.” And from what we’ve seen so far, we can only hope they stay in Boston and just keep writing these “love letters” home.
