i heart letterpress

So I had my first letterpress class this past Wednesday.
It was very fun and interesting,
finally getting to see how letterpress works.

My teacher set up some words for us
and let us each get a turn at
running a sheet through the press.
Nothing great, but here's mine:

And now I want to share some of
my all time favorite letterpress artists,
from etsy of course,
and some of my favorite picks from their shops.

I've been meaning to buy this for a long time.

I love the sense of humor in this.

cousin for her wedding. . .by misspicklespress

when I didn't have time to card shop.
totally recommend it!

I got a mother's day card for my mom from them
last year and she loved it.

So there you have it!
Just a small selection of the letterpress I love.
Share your favorites, I always want more!


  1. so is letterpress difficult? i have to say, i know almost nothing about it at all. except that it looks totally cool. i like that print you made. :)
    these are some great picks -- especially that letterpress house. so neat! :D

  2. how awesome. that is pretty neat for your first time :D i love the farmer's market strawberry cards.

  3. it's not difficult at all kelli, it's really cool! You should find a class and try it out! Maybe you could make a letterpress house some day :)

    and ana, the farmer's market one is so awesome. yeehaw makes a bunch of different veggie/fruit letterpress things, I love them all. I just need to stop spending so much dang money on etsy for a little bit, and then I can treat myself again. meanwhile, I hear just that one calling my name.
