I only have one product for this week’s edition of Cool Things Wednesdays…..but it can stand alone. The first of its kind Do-It-Yourself Letterpress Machine. I ordered one and will post projects on the blog in case you are interested.

Letterpress printing is a type of printing in which the raised surface of the type is inked and then pressed against a smooth substance to obtain an image in reverse.
Letterpress is also very costly. Why? First, it is challenging to print multi-colors as most equipment prints only one color at a time. Second, this printing process is less precise than offset printing and takes a skilled printer to overcome printing issues.
Enough talk….Here are some of my favorite Letterpress:
The above two are from Sarah Drake in Chicago. I used her and her beautiful grass design for my wedding invites.
Hello Lucky also has beautiful invites. They even sell their letterpess at Costco for 25% off!
Good on Paper is another one of my favorites.

Remember, they say that the invite sets the tone for a wedding!
