Letraset Portrait by truemarmalade Letraset Portrait by truemarmalade
My graphics professor has been in the hospital with pneumonia for the past few months, so the other staff members began cleaning out the back room/closet thing in his classroom. I happened to be there on the day in which the entire contents were strewn about in the rear of the classroom so I sifted through it all to see what I could find. They were intending on throwing out everything they found, but I almost came in my pants when I found a giant box of letraset letter press type from 1983. I've got about 300 pages of this stuff, so you should expect some more experimenting with what I can do with it.

This, if you can't tell, is the third picture of me in [link] . I put the font and size along the left side.

Hi, could I use this picture in design of my site? I'll show you the result and I promise to post on my site your links (page in social network; site where you sell your portraits, etc.), just send me these links.

Very nice. I certainly couldn't draw that let alone make it out of letters.

How do you layer the letters on top of one another withought the sticky letraset film picking it up?

been having issues with that for a while now -_-;

Umm I'm not sure really. If it picked up parts of letters that were already down, I'd just reapply those bits back where they were.

Yeah, I dunno. The stuff we've got in our art room at school is pretty old, plus you've got art majors scross fuor grades tearing them apart. they're kindof shit.
where did you get a hold of shiny new letraset?

Oh it's from the 80's, super vintage. It was in a box in the back of my graphics class room where it was lost for years. Some janitor was about to toss it when I saw "letraset" scrawled on the side in sharpie and yelled "NOO DON'T YOU DARE!" and claimed it for my own
