Look out Wes Anderson...


...'cause I've got a letterpress and your font...well, it's really Spartan, but it sure looks a lot like Futura. This is the first run on the press since I've gotten actual type, and let me tell you, typesetting is not for wusses! There's definitely a lot to learn about how to get a clear print on all letters. These aren't perfect, but they were fun...perfection will come. Next run: invitations for Margo Tenenbaum's new play.

Bets, I LOVE their imperfections. That's what gives them character. Can't wait to commission you for something.

Nicely done, sis! I love the "Your presence is a gift of high value" part. Well put.

Thanks, guys! I can't take credit for the wording, that was all mom. In fact, the whole thing was a total joint effort...mom's a pro at finding the letters in the tray. Mother daughter power!
