    I have an FAQ flyer. I slip alot of my invites into table number stands like they have at restaurants the silver ones, I have a teeny tiny Adana letterpress that I take along to demonstrate the process. I clamp it to the table and lock up a small quote and get clients to print from it. Good luck!

    I used to always wash on the press first to get most ink off and then once they were nearly clean, take them off for one last wipe.

    I started on a Pearl. Its a lovely press. It has all the same functions of a large C&P but more delicate and less acary (not that my C&P is scary now…) Treddle driven is also a good starter feature.  Only draw back to the pearl is it doesn’t open very wide when hand feeding (Ie the platen is still at around 30-45 degrees when fully open & some models have no throw off leaver.) but all fine to work with as a beginner. 🙂

    Hey Angela, organising a swap is a big job and I really appreciate your efforts.

    ‘shop’ is a very loose term! I do participate in pop up shops 2-3 imes a year for 2-3 months at a time, but otherwise, my shop is in my house! And is messy.  even when I tidy it up, it gets smashed within an hour! sigh.I love these ‘studio inspiration shops where the desk space is all white with awesome artwork and plants like no-one has ever sat at the desk!

    Basically I have thin draws for postage stuff – stickers, stamps, wraps etc. The deeper draws hold envelopes and cello bags.  The shelf holds the cards open flat, and the plastic boxes hold packed cards.

    Not a perfect system as I always seem to run out.  Im going to get a stock/inventory control thing one day but its too much for my brain right now!

    I just keep taking over the house!

    I pack say 20 of each card into cello – ready for the ‘shelves’ and store them in long dvd or cd box storage containers with lids.  The rest I keep flat until I run out of the packages ones and then will wrap another 20 or so. I store the long cd/dvd boxes on a wire crisps display shelf I found on the side of the road! The shelves are deep and they fit one box high. My storage/work/junk room is a disaster area – all the time!
