"Late reply, but incase anyone is still searching this topic, I really love using the 160lb Wild for coasters.  They accept a deep impression and are a nice thickness, thicker than neenah blotter."

"We discontinued buying Katz a few years ago when the cracking issue developed. It used to be a fine coaster but...something changed. It sounds like others in this thread experienced this as well. I don't believe the coaster stock is grained…"

Ren Vasiliev replied to Christy Etheredge's discussion Letterpress Coasters
"I haven't done any deep impressions, so don't know about the cracking. They do absorb water, much like the coasters at a bar. But, if you spray them with an automotive enamel (both sides) then they last much longer. I found a triple-thick…"

Storing pre-mixed ink

Hi Ladies (and gentlemen?)The time has come for me to be more efficient with my ink mixing. I've noticed that I use some colors more than others and I want to be able to mix up a large batch and store it somehow. What kind of container would you suggest? Tupperware? Glass? Small mason jars? I'm thinking quantities of about 2-5 oz to last at least 6 monthsThank you!See More

Marina replied to Christy Etheredge's discussion Letterpress Coasters
"Hi Christy, have you printed on these coasters yet?  I was just wondering how you found the quality, as I have seen so many conflicting opinions for this brand.  I'd hate to be stuck with 992 blank circles...   :)   ~Marina."

Gary Johanson replied to Christy Etheredge's discussion What is in a name?
"I almost always name my presses!  They are too important not to.  We name ships, aircraft, and if you go back to the early 1800s, in the days of the thwart-mounted 8-gauge bird guns of the Chesapeake, even the guns!  Even Swords…"

"I was about to suggest ... why not both? Flickr is just a good repository of all things photo, and it's easy to grab a link from there to post into Tumblr. It's somewhat of an "extra step," but I don't really consider Flickr…"
