Congratulations on your newest criminal and hero! Milo is a fine-looking little pressman--impressive muscles and appearance. When my youngest was born in 1988, the family was printing a Gocco Press "Namaste ji" card, so we immediately decided to include Genevieve, by taking one foot and smearing it through the ink surface. Cards turned out great. Feel free to do likewise with Milo. The sooner we support "Babies" of Letterpress, the better. At this point Genevieve is four months pregnant with her first, so I may have to set up the Gocco for a reprise of the Mama's plunge of 26 years ago into the world of letterpress. Best wishes, David L. Kent, APA 599 and Genevieve Kent Elbaor APA 711.
Thanks for the welcome! What an incredible resource. I'm up in the hinterlands of Alaska where there are no letterpresses to be found, but oh, I want one. So I'll be trying to absorb everything I can from you wonderful people.
So glad to see "ladies" being printers! Years ago (1963-65) I took printing in high school w/3.5 grade avg. Guys in my class got hired at American Greetings so I also applied there. They said they had "No women printers" so wouldn't consider it. Nice to see a little progress being made to accept females into the good ol' boy's world.
Thank you for inviting me to Ladies of letterpress. Hopefully over time I can pass on any tips or help or the other way round. Very new to letterpress just finding my feet at the moment. At the moment looking for help on painted edges so would welcome any help from anyone
