Letterpress delight

I have been fascinated by the letterpress since 2010. Back then, I really contemplated in getting the Epic 6 but it was SOOOO expensive in Malaysia which prompted me to do quite a lot of research on it. I didn't want to invest in a machine (plus accessories) that was going to set me back thousands of Ringgit if I am unable to justify it and so I scoured the internet for reviews.

Most of the reviews mentioned that the plates cracked. And being in Malaysia, I wasn't really sure if I could get plates made or how to go about it too. So, I decided to wait until the industry came out with better machines and better quality plates.

Come 2012, we packed and moved to Los Angeles. I had to sell a lot of my scrapbooking supplies and it was a good thing that I have not invested in the letterpress machine just yet.

Then letterpress came into the limelight again sometime last year, with Studio Calico promoting it. I was tempted again but waited. Was I glad I waited! We R Memory Keepers came out with Evolution Advanced and when I saw the great deal being offered on HSN (well, I saw the info posted by my IG friend.. haha), I decided to take the plunge.....

I made these and they make great accents for Project Life and even for card making :)

I am so glad I made this purchase. From now on, I will finally be able to die-cut, emboss and letterpress (happy dance!). It does take some learning & the cleaning up can be a mess but I love it and find it therapeutic.

If you like letterpress stationery but don't feel like investing in a machine or letterpress set just yet, you can purchase the above sets (or request customized stationeries) from my shop
