IL Shop – All Equipment for Sale

Hey everyone,Spoke with a printer yesterday who is closing his shop and needs to sell ALL of his equipment in the next month (by May) – or it's going to be scrapped (that kills me!  he's pretty upset about it too).  I let him know that I'd be passing on his contact info, but he still has to run the business for the next month so he'll be pretty busy and said he can't prepare a list of everything he has to sell. Here's his info:Melvin MillsClassic Printing CompanyDecatur,…See More

"I know the metal stamps hold the image better, but you can actually use a regular rubber stamp for wax seals as well.  Just leave it on the wax longer and gently try to take it off... if it's not ready to come off, leave it till it does…"

About Me:
Colleen grew up in a creative family of painters and printers, learning to love the process of making things by hand. In 2004, she graduated from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, receiving a BFA in Graphic Design. After working as a designer for several years, she took a letterpress workshop and was at once smitten with the entire process, learning all aspects of printing and deciding that this was where her heart was. She studied under several printers for over two years before launching her own freelance design and letterpress services in 2009, and then launching her studio, Letter & Lark, in 2012. Outside of the studio, Colleen is happiest while cooking in the kitchen, digging in the garden, collecting pinecones and seashells, watching Jane Austen movies while drinking a good cuppa, and spending time with her husband and her two cats.
