A We Heart Paper Milestone

Happy Monday folks! This past weekend we welcomed a new press into the We Heart Paper family and I am over the moon. Our new Vandercook SP-15 from the 60's and while it needed a thorough cleaning (above photo was taken before I scrubbed it down - you can see the dirt and grim streaking down the side) is in remarkable condition and most importantly, prints like a dream. I couldn't wait to break in the press and ran a few new cards - you can find them here, here and here.

In other news, Julie of Rosy + Tart is kindly hosting a giveaway of our Letterpress Doodle Hello + Thanks Notecards. You can enter here.
