The process:
Each Sarah Bloom Studio creation starts as a digital design that is then produced into photopolymer plates that are adhered to the base of the press. The press is motor operated, but each piece of paper is hand fed. Sarah does all of the designing, ink mixing, and pre-press work herself. It is truly a labor or love, and she is so excited to share her work with others.
