DIY Letterpress

Have any of you ever tried a DIY letterpress kit? I saw this Lifestyle Crafts kit at Hobby Lobby today, but I'm not sure how good of a job it can do. Let me know if you've tried it! They had several great ink colors and printing plates. These are two of the ones I saw today that I liked the look of. You can also have custom printing plates made on their website, which is a great idea!

Images found here.


  1. I'm DYING to try my hands at letterpress on this sucker! I'm such a fan of the look, but the price tags on letter press always make me faint!

    Wonderful to meet you and your blog!

  2. No, I haven't. YET! This is really intriguing!

  3. Funny ~ I looked at this same kit last week & was very tempted to try it out. I decided to do some research before I make the investment. My Hobby Lobby didn't offer any type of demos or classes, maybe yours does.

  4. Looks like fun!!! Rhonda

  5. Oh I've never heard of a DIY letterpress kit! What a wonderful idea. I love all the decorative flourishes!
