is it just me?

Okay. Seriously. Is it just me or do these birth announcements boggle your mind and make your heart race?

What is it about letterpress that makes me weak in the knees?



   by Ty Mattson

I think I feel about letterpress the way some people feel about nicotine. Totally addicted.

Which leads me to the actual reason for this post. No, I haven't taken up smoking. How gross of you to think such a thing.

I have a little announcement to make. And no I'm not pregnant. Ew! How gross of you to think that. My word, will you stop it already?

The announcement is this: We bought a letterpress. Our very own. It's traveling from Cincinnati even as I write.

That fact, the mere idea, of having my own letterpress, makes me feel like the shiz.

Today you can find me strutting my plume, feeling all artsy and crap and cleaning out the car. There are like a billion Cheerios mashed into the carpet.

I think I just saw your letterpress pass south of Chicago (while sitting in traffic trying NOT to get to Lollapalooza and Lady Gaga) an hour or so ago. It seemed to be making good time.

Best,

OH I love letterpress. I priced letterpress baby announcements and gasped when I saw the estimate. Maybe I'll buy my own some day.
