    Oh, yay! Hehe, I’m adding this to my wishlist. Do you think you’ll be offering classes on how to use this?

    I have four words about the new Letterpress Machine. I AM IN AWE! This is like my dream come true. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these!

  3. Laura says:

    Any ideas on when this will be released? I’ve been on the waiting list since September!

    Here is the scoop!! Since we had our orders in early with this vendor we are getting a delivery right off the trucks, (of the first round) of 2 machines – to each store- so come EARLY to the demos this weekend for our hands on make & take demo and your own machine! We will also be placing the orders for you online incase you want to see it action first!

    But, we have them available RIGHT NOW online. And with our special FREE shipping offer for sales over $100, if you order now you can have it shipped free.

    See you all at the stores…were we can fall in love together with this new “must have” letterpress tool!

  5. I was sooo excited, I blogged and sent a tweet out about it! How exciting for all of us DIYers out there.


  6. katrina says:

    could you create a video demo (youtube, vimeo)? please?

  7. Violet says:

    I can’t wait to get one!!! I’d love to introduce some letterpress items into my Etsy shop. Will more plates be released?

  8. linda says:

    hmmm, a Video?
    Well without Sue here to be my “talent”…I might have to put this one on my to-do list. However, I’ll definitely put together the easy “5 step” instructions with photos for printing with the Epic. This should provide at least a simple crash course – in the short term – until the video happens.

    Thanks too for the tweets, YAY’s! and visits to the store. We love hearing from you and espceially enjoyed seeing so many folks at the store demos this weekend. Here’s to hoping you all enjoyed the free demos and the crafting projects!?

    For all of you who didn’t get your demo fix, you can still stop in this weekend “think glittered stars!”

    Workshops, Demos & Special Events!

    Looks like a great idea, but is it possible to make custom plates? Or are you limited to the three sets of plates that are sold on your website?

  10. Ashley says:

    I’m with Michelle. Would be fabulous to have, but very limiting without the ability to make custom plates from your own designs. Any idea?

  11. Jen Niles says:

    Getting out to stores right now is nearly impossible with only 1 car, no child care and TONS of holiday art work to do…will there be any YouTube demos showing how this thing works? I am very interested but I want to know how it works first.

  12. Ashley says:

    Jen, there are YouTube videos already up. Not through PS, but plenty available. It looks quite simple.

    Try this:

  13. jennifer m says:

    can’t wait to get my hands on one of these! it’s a genius idea.
    i’m with everyone else too..wondering if there are more plates other than the 3 here..and are they plans to let us design our own?
    the possibilities are endless for this!
    thanks so much

  14. Jen M says:

    This could be absolutely lovely… especially if we had the option for custom designed plates at a fairly reasonable price! More info, please! Has anyone compared the quality of this machine’s results to professionally letterpressed items?
