Let me get this straight…. you put the letterpress paper through a computer printer, then had a letterpress plate made of the same text… and then used the L-letterpress, but didn’t use ink?  So you did like a blind-press ontop of digital press?

Interesting!  And very creative and beautiful!

@Gardenbride2012:  thats super creative! 

I used the L, too.  But I used ink.  It does take a while to figure out how much ink to get on the plates (barely any is all you need), and some of my first prints were really muddy too. 

I like the idea though!  It sort of reminds me of these invitations called “Letterpress Light”  – have you ever heard of them?  It’s almost exactly the same as your idea!

Those look amazing! Good job! I would have loved to do letterpress, and considered buying the machine at Paper Source, but Fiance would have killed me if I spent the money on that.
