First Letterpress Print

Last weekend I dove in and printed my first letterpress print. It was tricky, I won't lie but I was really happy with the results my Kelsey Excelsior 6x10 produced. The design is one I made last April right before I moved to Portland. I had originally planned to only screenprint it but the design seemed to beg to be pressed, especially the smoke part so I bought photopolymer plates to print it. Above is a shot of the press with the plate for the silver in it and the some pics of the final printed piece. If you would like to buy one they are for sale in my etsy shop
