letterpressed envelops

My personalised stationery from Roderick of Fogday Press arrived today! After weeks of my checking the mailbox like a fiend. More pictures to come.

The thing about letterpress is that you have to feel it. This photo cannot show the tactile beauty of the envelops� the embossed letters, the thick, soft paper and the subtle grey ink. Plus, it’s great fun to fun your fingers over the tiny indentations.

I’d love to see photos— It looks like they do great work. I’m working on getting a small letterpress business going myself. Building that portfolio is a lot of fun. People that like letterpress imagine some great creative projects.

How much does a letterpress machine cost? I saw Karen’s stationery and now I feel I need some personalised letterheads and envelopes too! Must get’em!

Check out Roderick’s makeready.org and Briar Press for letterpress resources.

that looks like it’s worth splurging on. your description helped me experience it but i will probably need to go to the paperstore for my fix :)

Mrs. Eaves, where would we be without you?

Funny thing, I was just at your blog reading about the limerick project.
