Hello everyone! Popping in to share some fun I've had playing with the custom letterpress printing plates from Lifestyle Crafts / We R Memory Keepers. I love all the pre-designed printing plates  by Lifestyle Crafts, but I've always wanted to have some of my own. I've also got to play with the new and improved L Letterpress Platform (which will be available in WRMK official online store tomorrow, April 10!). I love that we have a few inks and some cleaning cloths to get started without further investment!

Now that I've tried, I think that more delicate designs with finer lines will showcase this technique a lot more better. Something to try later! waffle-flower-custom-letterpress-closeup Cool, right? And I immediately used the tag on a gift bag! waffle-flower-custom-letterpress-gift-bag If you want to order your own custom letterpress printing plates, remember to check out the specifications on this page and place the order here.
