We recently printed a wordy custom piece for a wedding and loved how it turned out...but also loved how it looked before it was printed! It's really satisfying to see your handiwork come together in a big block of metal type. And - although at first, it might seem terrible or boring or just mindless work - breaking pieces back down and putting type away is really meditative (and a bit cathartic, especially if it was hard to set in the first place!).
Oh, and by the way - welcome to our new blog! We've moved it from our Blogger blog so that everything is on one website - it's just easier that way. We kept all of the old posts, though, so nothing's been lost in the transfer. You can bookmark this page here (or add it to your blog reader). Thanks for coming along!
