If you've ever wondered why a letterpress invitation costs so much more than other varieties, you're not alone. A letterpress stationer would be able to tell you everything that goes along with the process- the time one design will take, the expense of the printing plates and other materials associated with it to start. But how about being able to make letterpress wedding invitations in your own home?
The new QuickKutz Letterpress Machine is currently featured on Paper Source- this little gem allows you to whip up sweet cards and crafts, all with that letterpress quality, in an instant (well, close enough). There have been varying opinions on the idea- enthusiastic cheers from the crafty divas out there, and not so enthused claims from true letterpress artists. We'll leave the verdict up to you- what do you think? Great idea or does it stop short of the real thing? Either way it does open the door to all sorts of crafty whimsy and elegance, with invitations, cards, and tags made by you. If you've got the time, $150.00 (not too bad, actually), and a crafty bone in you, it may just be worth it!
~ Happy Planning!
