Practice practice practice
A few weeks ago a friend of mine commissioned me for a small edition of a letterpress broadside featuring the text of "Bond and Free" by Robert Frost. This was a great opportunity to get some experience on the business end of printing as well as getting some more practice with my press. I ordered some beautiful paper from ArtPaper: 100% cotton, mouldmade in France, with beautiful deckled edges. I even invested in another color of ink: Pantone Reflex Blue. It's always fun to play around with quality materials.
