Paper Source stores nationwide will be hosting free holiday demonstrations and "make & take" workshops this coming Saturday and Sunday, November 14th and 15th*. Though just about everything about Paper Source is fabulous, the best part about these workshops is that they will include an exclusive opportunity to see and potentially use the latest addition to their line: the QuicKutz Letterpress Machine!
This letterpress machine is a home-crafter's dream come true. Create greeting cards, scrapbook pages and accents, merchandising accessories and even business cards with your own special touch! It is reasonably priced, though I can't speak to it's usability or quality just yet, at $149.95 and fits onto any table top. The price also includes an array of accessories that really make the deal even sweeter: letterpress tool, Epic 6 machine, clear packing mat with packing sheet, ink brayer, ink base, black letterpress ink, letterpress paper (10 sheets of A2 flat), paper positioning guides, printing plates, printing plate adhesive. Paper Source also has a few printing plates and ink selections to choose from, and I'm sure more are on the way!
If you've tried the QuicKutz, let me know in the comments! I'm off to write Santa a letter.
* Remember, supplies are limited and available on a first come first serve basis, so get there early!
