Letterpress

Not sure if you re-call how I was obsessed with letterpress a few weeks ago...ha! Well, it hasn't stopped, in fact the obsession has grown.....As mentioned, I took the workshop and now have a sweet boxful of letterpressed cards and lined envelopes!

I finished lining the envelopes last night which they taught us how to do in the class as well (I choose a lovely red textured paper to contrast the black impression and white paper) and now have a lovely finished set of notecards that were made with my very own hands! super cool!

Thanks to Diana from MAKE workshop and Breck and Matt from Sesame Letterpress for making such a cool learning experience available to the public! It was so interesting and a lot of fun! I also met a girl who was getting married on 10.18.08 and in Long Island City -- funny, right? What a small world. We're planning a drive-by of each other's wedding spots since they're only a few blocks apart!

Anywho, here's the final product! I hope to write to you all in the next few months so you can get an up close look! Also, more pics can be found on my flickr page!
