sooo … paper source is now selling an at-home letterpress machine. wait … what? i LOVE paper source but they’re touting it as a “truly amazing & affordable way to make your own letterpress creations.”
the “letterpress” machine is $150. Add $25 for their plates (there are only 3 sets available right now), $7 for ink (4 colors to choose from), and plenty of paper for test runs and you’re easily out nearly $300. not to mention the TIME it’ll take to get this working perfectly.
this seems like one of those DIY projects that may not be worth it in the end. what do you think?
