It’s no secret that I love letterpress, so when I came across this little letterpress machine by Lifestyle Crafts while reading Black Eiffel the other day, I was really excited.

It seems to be much like a Gocco, but instead of screen printing, it leaves a bit of an impression on the paper, which I love. Lifestyle Crafts also offers customers custom printing plates, so that budding printers can upload a pdf and have a plate made for their next printing endeavor. While it may not be an altogether quick project–you still need to do a little planning ahead to roll out a new line of thank you notes, it’s definitely a more convenient option than finding a local letterpress studio to rent out for a few hours.
