print availability

status update: 

prints available in late November 2019 

Lots of other things happening in my life. Not bad things, but those things mean that print work takes a back seat. 

Looking back at previous posts, it seems like this site is one long apology with a few pictures for clarity. I suppose those apologies are meant for the kind people who have inquired about purchasing prints. I am still humbled by those requests. Thank you.    

Since this time last year, I've also encountered a few mechanical issues with the three platen presses I operate. But, that’s expected when working with 75-100 year old equipment. 

Upside: I will have some quality time in the printshop in October and November. Just a few short months away. And, I will be cranking out a bunch of prints as I calibrate the presses.

The holiday are now over, and some of us are now participating in DryJanuary and tidying up with the Kondo method. Whatever makes you happy. 

It’s good to have goals and challenges. But, I don’t make resolutions. I prefer to think of them as intentions. Maybe just low-key executions. 

One personal intention is printing more of what makes me happy. Another is decluttering my digital life. To that end, I will be offering some prints for sale through my personal Instagram account. 

lagging

I feel like I owe an apology to all the kind people who have inquired about purchasing prints. I’ll be honest—I’ve been lagging. 

These last three months, my “real job” has kept me far busier than I had anticipated. And, to be blunt, creating a new point-of-sale website has not been a priority. Hey, I need access to healthcare and a meager retirement plan...I’m not proud. 

So, to all those who have DM’d, emailed, texted, and called I offer my apologies. I’m humbled that people still want to purchase my prints. It means a lot  

Upside: I’ll have some time in early November (just a few short days away!) to get it going. And, I’ve been cranking out prints on weekends...I’m stockpiling all kinds of good stuff to list.

“I’m not slow—I’m deliberate.”

Full-time time employment has kept me out of the workshop quite a bit these last two years. Thankfully, the summer months do give me a few precious days to print, and futz around with my type & cuts.   

I like to think I’m maximizing this time–that I’m printing a bunch of stuff to share and sell. But, that hasn’t happened in a while. Letterpress work was always a hobby for me. It always will be. And, it’s humbling to think that people want to buy my prints, cards, and notebooks.  

With that in mind, I’ve taken my paid BigCartel site offline. That was $120 per year (+ commissions from PayPal and Stripe) that could have bought more paper, new rollers, type, or ink. And, I really don’t feel like going back to Etsy. 

I’m not sure how sales will happen going forward. Instagram posts? PayPal only? MailChimp campaigns? Maybe this site if I tinker with it? 

Trust that I’m working on it. And, I’m cranking some prints! 


back at it

It’s been a while since I’ve had time to print. I’ve missed it. A lot. 

I’ve appreciated all the email inquiries and Instagram DMs asking when items will be restocked. And, I’ve been thinking about ways to accommodate those requests  

To start, I’ve decided to close out my existing online shop. It was too cumbersome to manage, and really didn’t provide much value. Going forward, all items for sale will now be posted here. 

More details coming soon!
