L Letterpress + Giveaway

*WINNER randomly selected and announced : Congrats Lauren! and thank you again L Letterpress.

L Letterpress

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to personally meet with one of the creators and staff behind the L Letterpress at Lifestyle Crafts in their QuicKutz office building. I was very impressed with their back story and how they are wanting to extend the art of letterpress to be more accessible to the average Jane or Joe.

L Letterpress

I don't think it will ever replace the nostalgia, impeccable perfection, deep impression, and process of my dear friends that have letterpress companies, but it can be an extremely useful tool for the at home designer crafter. I like to think of the L Letterpress as something similar to a Gocco created all the way back in 1977. (Are you familiar with what a Gocco is? If not read here). Seeing it in action, and they also gave me a machine to try myself I am amazed at the quality and how it has a similar look and feel to letterpress, but don't be worried letterpress businesses --- you will be fine.

L Letterpress

They have a variety of plates to choose from, but what I really like is that you can also upload your designs to make your own custom plates which makes it a lot more versatile.

It is a pretty cool machine and I am very happy to be able to share one with you readers! Lifestyle Crafts is giving a L Letterpress Combo Kit and custom letterpress plate to a lucky Black Eiffel reader. (A nearly $190 value) You can find their product line here to purchase and I've also seen them at Paper Source, but you can also find them at select craft stores.

To enter: please leave only one comment below, no anonymous please and make sure your email address is accessible. Giveaway will close on February 15th. Winner will be selected randomly, contacted and announced on this post on Tuesday February 16th. (GIVEAWAY CLOSED & WINNER ANNOUNCED.)

My daughter took a class in letterpress at college. She would love to use the letterpress machine with her poetry and I would love to be able to give it to her.

artistjc said...

I saw this at A.C. Moore yesterday and almost passed-out. I would have got one yesterday but they were out of them.

I've been hoping someone would come out with something like this for a while. I've always been interested in letterpress, but the machines are so expensive this is a not alternative to help someone get started. I'm so anxious to try it.

Crossing my fingers for a win.

I think I'm too late to enter... But I want one Oh So Badly! I was torn when I heard that the Gocco is no longer in production! I love my Gocco so much and hate that the supplies are now 5 times the cost they used to be!
Just in case, my email is msmo423@hotmail.com

Skaldi said...

Wow your so awesome to offer a free one. I hope I can get one. I know I would love & treasure it everyday. There are just so many wonderful possibilities! I could make some beautiful Thank You cards to send out to friends. I could make letterpressed valentines and add them to my blog. I could make embossed Birthday cards for all of my girlfriends. I could make some embossed journal covers.

Sylvia said...

What are the chances, eh? But what the heck. Choose me!

Michelle said...

I am a graphic designer and my dream has always been to have a letter press of my own to create beautiful images. This product is amazing also the fact that you can send for custom plates is a sign of the times. There is nothing more beautiful then a letterpress print.
