{ Stop Talking in Letterpress }


Saturday night, My friend Leland (a man in my ward who also happens to own two letterpresses and a massively rad industrial paper cutter) and I fired up the letterpress to make some lovely "Stop Talking" cards.

Mostly I made them to silently slip to friends in choice "quiet" places like church or the opera, just becuase it's funny. But man, will they be so handy all those times I will be going to the opera this year. They measure 3.5" x 2.5" x awesome.

Next project: Christmas cards. And a calendar :)

Leland's killer paper cutter -- cuts stacks of paper like butter. SO rad.

Our "Stop Talking" cards with the inspiration "stop talking" card (upper left) that I got from my roommate Allison a few months ago. The letterpress ones blow their printed counterparts out of the water.
