Press check!

On Thursday, I was at Modern Press to press check the Minnesota Scholastic Art Awards magazine. A few things needed to be changed, so new plates had to be burned. The piece will likely be printed on Monday or Tuesday of next week. The piece is a 20-page magazine printed on Sappi Flo Dull stock with an aqueous flood throughout. This was the first press check I was able to go on for my job in DesignWorks- 'twas fun!
