Letter Press.

Postby LaserGnomes » Tue Aug 06, 2013 10:48 am

Around here we have two goals.

1. Make things that don't exist
2. Make things that are ridiculously expensive.

This weekend.. Sarah accomplished two of those goals.

Seeing the exuberant cost of letter press gear ($20 a plastic plate) to stamp designs into paper...Sarah thought "well we can just make this". So she did.

We ordered a Fiskars Fuse Letter Press machine... and then got to work reverse engineering the pressing system, the plates, and the letterpress ink plates.
