Print on a Letterpress at Holiday Heap!

If you come out to Holiday Heap this Saturday (and you should, of course- you don't want to miss it!) you can stop by Bowerbox Press's table and learn a little bit about letterpress printing. Val will have a small tabletop press set up and you can print a holiday card to take home, for free!
Even kids can give it a try.

Here's a sneak peek at what you can print.

The press is a Kelsey 5x8, a small press marketed to boys in the 1900s. It's still pretty easy to find this kind today, they were made up until the 1970s. Keep your eyes open at flea markets and antique stores and you might get lucky!
