It's the small things in life


Small things that make me happy include, but are not limited to: diamonds, puppies, squished pennies, electric bills, those amazing miniature paintings, my homegirl Lieanna (she's a baby...literally), friendly gestures, and last but not least, tiny letterpress printed type that comes out perfectly.

For the last year (o.k. it's only been 11 months) we have been making our own printing plates, laser style. We have experimented with different plate material, but I think this last project proved that we finally hit our stride. With the right plate and propper settings the text is coming out crisp, tiny, and I was able to go from computer to press in 18 minutes. 

Bring it on Smalls!
