Good luck with your wedding invitations. My daughter's were my first =
letterpress job on my platen press. Gold and black ink with a full =
border on dampened Rives cotton paper. They came out very nice and my =
daughter was pleased.
That is not to say however that I wouldn't do it somewhat differently =
and I know better today, with a year of additional experience under my =
belt. The key for me is to keep doing projects to keep learning.

Can anyone tell me if using the polymer casts for letterpress as opposed =
to the magnesium is that much better? I am casting Calligraphy for =
Also I own a Franklin Proof Press a( 6x10 Platen hand operated press). I =
have never used it. Am I getting in over my head to expect to print 200 =
wedding invitations for a first attempt at printing?
THanks for any help,
