Cat Out of the Bag…

January 12, 2010

I have mentioned a few times that I am working on a “surprize “or “hopefully, I’ll have some good news to share…”

Well, that day hasn’t actually come, but I have decided to share the new anyways….I am starting a Letterpress Studio.

At the moment it feels (looks?) like my printing process will look more like this…

and less like this…

satsuma press, letterpress, letter writing, hand written note, notecards, art, ink,

{from the wonderful Satsuma Press}

My press (who I have already named Chandler), comes from my uncle Bruce, who has used it as a die press for 10+ years. Chandler has to be converted back into a printing press. No sweat, you say? One would think it to be easy living in the era of la intra-net, but, re-assembling a press from 1926 is no easy feat! 

Parts are coming from all over and I am learning something new everyday. As soon as the website is a bit more polished, I will put that info up here as well. I am learning way to much about how the internet works these days!

And once I have some finished product, there will be a give-away, too (I hear people like free stuff as much as I do.)! Stay tuned…
