I looked at the samples in my "local" Archiver's last week and I wasn't that impressed.

I think the excitement is in a "debossed with ink look" but I think there are other ways to replicated that look without this kit and traditional lettepresses that I have seen don't squeeze from one end to the other they squeeze the whole project at the same time. I don't know if I am making sense with that. But even the homemade letter presses I have seen look more like Pressing flowers system than the side to side/front to back feed system of this system and I think that could affect the outcome. Just think of it this way anytime you have a glob of ink if you take a bit of paper and press it from left to right you have a different look/outcome than if you pressed it straight down.

I would LOVE it if someone came up with a new machine that presses down to do this (ie.... like a letterpress) bc today you can only get antique machines that you may have to refurb to use.

Theoretically it would be a whole new gadget for all of us to buy & I would think you could incorporate die-cuts & embossing into it - it's like you say RiverIsis.... pressure straight down not down & rolling.

Unless I get a gift card for a store that is above what I'd pay with a coup then I think I am waiting.... but hey - if I get a gift card I'll take my coupon & get one!

Check out my work at... and
