Love/List: Letterpress

This week my hubby and I took a big step in fulfilling our dreams – we went and looked at a 100 year old building to possibly buy and turn into an antique shop!

The building currently has renters – there is commercial space on the main level that is occupied by a printing company and an gorgeous apartment upstairs. As we toured the main level, a 91 year old man sat in the print shop running his letterpress machine. I just stood there and watched him run this huge machine effortlessly and realized that he could definitely teach me a thing or two about running a letterpress machine. I’ve got alot to learn.

With Mother’s Day, Graduations, Birthdays and Engage-aversaries (mine is today!!) right around the corner, I’m in love with letterpressed gift tags.
Here are some gorgeous examples…

Aren’t they wonderful? They could definitely dress up any package they graced.

Have a wonderful weekend – I’ve got a cute little video to share with you tomorrow so make sure to check back!
