I Love it 1

Our valentine printing event was a big hit! Over 70 people stopped by to make a valentine on our handmade paper; everyone walked away with a smile.

We printed our logo on the back of all the valentines with our big letterpress. In the background you can see my hands locking up the chase to print a valentine.  Each person got to set their own valentine so that meant a lot of lock-ups.

People gathered around the type case and selected letters one by one to place in the composing stick to spell out what they wanted to say.

Thanks to everyone who made a valentine and thanks to Dandelion Chocolate for hosting us.
