Printing all day everyday

Will you please look at that impression? Amazing!

This is a sneak preview of a brand new item! It's not quite done, so it's not up in the shop yet, but I'm super excited. I should be getting the tab cards in today, and will print letter dividers on them and get them ready for RENEGADE CHICAGO this weekend!

I've once again enlisted my dad to make me some boxes. And these are in oak! So very pretty. I think I'll have about 10 of them for sale in Chicago this weekend, and will take orders for more on my etsy shop. I'm cutting it close!

We tried out all kinds of things on our new press this weekend--this was a vintage Santa and reindeer cut from Jerry at SOS Linotype in Nashville. It printed so beautifully on the C&P press!

This is very exciting: Carrie's Chicago print. It's 5x7, and in 2 colors! We hope to post it on Etsy this week.

And here is Carrie's mom, Neda assembling calendars for us at the barn while we printed. I think we're finally done with the darn calendar. Next year, we're doing it differently! But first, we still have about 150 to sell!

Holy crap! HA! I see Jerry gave you some Christmas cuts, his "gift with purchase." You two have an amazing weekend. Damn, I really wish I could be up there.

When things settle down we need to look at a weekend for my to come up. First I have to get my eyes checked + probably new glasses though. I'm banned from long driving at night after coming back from Thanksgiving, kind-a scary.

Anyway...all my best to you!!!

Great post, and excellent preview! The photos were an excellent idea to not only show off what you are doing, but to also draw us into the EXPERIENCE of the prints. I can almost feel the paper and smell the ink... LOL. Anyway, I've been really enjoying the blog lately, and you have been inspiring me to put some new prints of my own together.

Keep up the great work!
