Small Works exists as a print shop and an educational community. To facilitate this, we will be posting videos that teach about the printing processes, what they’re best used for, about design theory, and about how to best connect with your commuinties through design. 
If you want to see a tutorial, or just have general quesitons about any of the previously mentioned topics, feel free to reach out. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can. In the meantime, enjoy the videos below. Hope they help a bit.

This video walks through makeready, setting your gauge pins (or blocks) and how to center something on a page without having to use a ruler. Very good advice, and very practical. 

This is not our tutorial, it’s from the National Print Museum of Ireland, but we’re posting it here because it’s really, really good.
