Oh yeah, I'm also a letterpress printer.

I've been printing since 1999, but for some reason I didn't think it belonged on this blog. I've printed tons of stuff, mostly wedding invitations, and I can't possibly post it all. I can, however, post the calendar pages I've been doing since 2006. I belong to a group of letterpress printers called the Redwood Chappel. (Not religious, that's just what a group of printers is called. It's rather unfortunate these days, like a murder of crows.) Each of the members is assigned a page, we each design and print 400-500 copies, then we get together in October to collate them and talk about how our year went. I'm glad to be a part of it... until recently I've been the only printing female member, and only one of two under age 60 or so.
From top to bottom:
October 2006
November 2007
December 2008
cover 2009
March 2010
April 2011
May 2012
(Sorry about the formatting... this interface drives me batty and I can't get it to look how I would like it to.) You may notice that the most recent page, May 2012, was the inspiration for my Spoonflower tea towel calendar.
