L Letterpress Giveaway *CLOSED*


I’m totally squealing with delight over this giveaway. Oh. My. Gosh. At Alt in January I had the awesome opportunity to see this machine in action & meet a couple of the lovely ladies behind the creative scenes. I’ve been drooling over it ever since.

      So cool!!!! I love making hand-made cards for people, but i usually just use scrapbook paper. This letterpress would be amazing!

    2. Kirsten says:

      Loved the design of all the plates. I’d love to make my Christmas cards with that machine:)

    3. Jillian says:

      I’m getting married and would love to use the Flourish printing plates for my reception details!

    4. Jenny C says:

      oooooooo – i would love to make wedding invitations!

    5. Hazel says:

      I would love to win this letterpress machine! I just got engaged and letterpress invitations would be totally out of my budget, but I would definitely use this to add some letterpress details to everything!

    6. Megan says:

      I’ve had a chance to use this machine and I thought it was ah-mazing good fun! I would LOVE to be so lucky to win one and make some darn cute Christmas cards. And stationary. And place cards. And oh the possibilities!

    7. Gina G says:

      The LC printing plates are such beautiful compositions in and of themselves; each motif tells a wonderful story that will be “pressed” not only on to a piece of card stock but also into the hearts of those who are lucky enough to receive. What great sources of inspiration!

    8. Jes says:

      Pretty stationary to give as gifts and to send away leters to friends!

    9. Emily says:

      I would make soo many notecards! I love Love LOVE Letterpress!!

    10. Jenn says:

      I would make our Christmas cards :)

    11. Adrienne says:

      The “Splendor” sunburst sort of design is my favorite. What wouldn’t I use that for? For the machine in general of course Christmas cards come to mind. But gift tags and labels of all sorts, invitations… A teeny letterpress machine is a dream come true!

    12. Michelle says:

      I’m a newbie to crafting things and would love to win this to make lots and lots of cards!

    13. Jennifer O'C says:

      OMG! I would use the “Flourish” plates to help my new sister in law make her wedding invitations!!!!

    14. Jenn Consentino says:

      I would love a letterpress because I spend my free time cardmaking. My baby shower is coming up and I would love to have a unique invite!

    15. Erin R. says:

      I would make cards and gifts (stationary) galore. I still don’t know which plate that I like best, they are all so awesome. I think that I would do Posy or Twigs and Spigs, because they are the most versitile. This is the coolest machine ever, I’d never heard of it.

    16. jen says:

      oh my gosh, I would make all kinds of paper goods…all.the.time.

    26. Tara Angus says:

    29. Leslie says:

      I am the WORST at remembering to buy greeting cards, and since we’re on a bit of a tight budget right now, I would love an L Letterpress so I could make a stockpile of birthday, anniversary, holiday, etc cards. That way I’d never have to go to someone’s birthday party feeling like a schmuck for forgetting to go out and buy a card.

    30. Jenni says:

      I saw the tweet! Hope I win!

    31. WAAAAH i want some so bad to make invitations to all of my parties!

    36. Mary Johnson says:

      Wow! the ideas would be endless. Family and 5th grade classroom projects here I come!

    37. Naomi says:

      I love the twigs & sprigs design. I am obsessed with cherry blossoms and plum blossoms or anything that resembles them. :)

    38. amanda young says:

      Amazing! I’d undoubtedly give it to my friend Erinn, who has been swooning over learning letterpress for years. Both her birthday and wedding are over the next month and I’ve been in angst over what to get her. This would be perfect and such an amazing present!

    39. Jen Crabtree says:

      This looks fantastic! Would love to have one to use for invitations, cards, announcements… so many endless options!

    40. stephanie marie says:

      I would use this for everything! My monthly dinner parties, the future wedding, wall art for my little 1920s cottage, and more! Letterpress is amazing, but it’s never been something within my means, and this machine would make that happen. I would love to play with colors and impressions in the paper – it really brings design into 3 dimensions, which is oh so much more fun than just the boring 2.
      Yes, I am a nerd who loves her Pantone color book a little too much :)

    41. Emily says:

      My daughter would LOVE this machine! What a great Christmas gift! (And I saw your tweet!)

    42. Oh my goodness!!
      First of all, congrats on 3 years! And cheers to many more!

      This is an incredible giveaway! My mind is going crazy on all the cool things I could do with this. I was just thinking about how I could make some super Holiday tags for all my handmade gifts this year:)

      Thanks for the chance!

    43. Ashley says:

      I have ALWAYS wanted letter pressed business cards but have never been able to justify the price… would love love LOVE to be able to make them myself!

    44. Emily says:

      And I saw your tweet on Twitter–thanks! :)

    45. Laura says:

      Oh my goodness! I would go crazy and make all kinds of homemade cards, gift tags and invitations. This is wonderful!
