Here’s something that has everybody buzzing… a letterpress machine for the crafter. That’s right. Letterpress. At home. QuickKutz has launched a new brand: Lifestyle Crafts (also known as L), and is about to release what crafters have been clamoring for: elegant letterpress, with the ease of folder embossing.
When paired with the QuicKutz Epic 6 (or other well-known die-cut machines) and a sticky oil-based ink, the Letterpress debosses and applies ink simultaneously. And when you use the Letterpress soft cotton paper, no impression is left on the back side. Impressive! (pun intended)
The Letterpress line has a two kits to make sure you’ll have everything you need, as well as lots of accessories that you’re going to want. The starter kit will retail for $69.99; there’s also a kit that includes the Epic 6 for $149.99. There’s a full line of 20 inks (which are completely mixable for custom colors), as well as coolio impression plates (really awesomely designed), and soft cotton paper for the best letterpressing results.
Overall, we were really impressed (ha! sorry, couldn’t resist) with the Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress. It looks very promising, and I can’t wait to get my hands on one!
