Today I am showing you the Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress Kit! They have updated it with new Printing Plates, as well, you now get 5 different colours of mini tubes of ink! The Letterpress platform will fit in most of the die cutting machines on the market. I am using the new Lifestyle Crafts Evolution Die cutting machine in the video!
The difference between Letter Pressing and Embossing is when you Letterpress you are just pressing the design into a thicker paper – the back is completely flat. You can emboss with most papers and there is texture from the design on both the front and back of the paper.
Once you start Letter Pressing it goes quickly! I made 6 of each of the 6 card designs, plus matching envelopes, in just over 2 hours! I am now packaging them up to give them as gifts to my relatives and Gemma’s teacher! A set of cards also make perfect Hostess Gifts! And the Letter Pressed cards look so professional!
Lifestyle Crafts also offers Custom Letterpress Plates! You design your own and they will make it for you! Perfect if you are planning a wedding or party! Or just to have your own design!!
