Printing a Peanut Publication

Posted on July 29, 2015 by Ashly Stohl

Why did we print Charth Vader at Meridian Printing in Rhode Island?  They have printed some amazing books for our favorite photographers.  If it's good enough for Lee Friedlander, Richard Avedon, Robert Adams and Irving Penn, it's good enough for us.

We arrived in the morning and the first sheet was already printed.

Thanks to Joe Chanin's many rounds of proofs, and the skill of the guys running the press, it looked amazing.  But there was still work to be done.  Registration needs to be checked, and ink levels changed to adjust the tones of the image.  How do you do that?

First you get a group of people to stand around and look at the sheet.

Then you wave your hands over it.

Throw it in the trash.

And ask the giant press for a new one.

While the press is working on your new sheets, there is time to kill. You can immerse yourself in Meridian's a library of amazing photo books,

and get some important work done.

Then we recheck the press proofs

and the whole process starts again.  It's exhausting.

But by the end of the day, we had something that we all could agree looked amazing.

Ashly gave the final ok

and the pages were printed...

Joe was blown away by the quailty of the printing at Meridian.

Now the sheets will be cut and bound, and turned into a book.  Pre-order yours today!
