July 4th coasters

July 4th coasters

We did an interesting coaster this past month to celebrate the American Revolution and the July 4th holiday that resulted from it. I had wondered how you might register a round coaster on the press.

Instead, I decided I would design one that didn’t need to be registered.

We had a photopolymer plate made of the word “revolution”, centered it in the coaster and printed it using only two registration pins. The idea was that I would never care how it was positioned. We did this for the July APA bundle. Fun and they make nice gifts today. We will use them at lunch at the Glass Kitchen today while working on our Tour de Lead Graffiti project.
