My little Quickutz Letterpress system arrived!

I was so excited that I had to try it right away :)  I tested it quickly with both the plates that came with the set and my own photopolymer plate - and they both worked nicely.  I did have a hard time applying the ink evenly on the plates with the mini-brayer that came with the set.  I got ink all over the place...

Without any ink and I still got a very good impression

Too much ink on the left.  Uneven ink on the right.

2nd impression without reapplying ink.

Lego man is from a photopolymer plate.  "I Love You" is the plastic plate that came with the set.


So if I took my time and used the speedball 6" brayer, I am pretty sure I can get some nice little letterpressed cards.
