OMGHi2U My letterpress containment thread - Unamused Have A Christmas in stock + 2 new cards

I have a couple threads about my adventures in letterpress printing:

I just bought a 51 year old, 2400lb. giant chunk of iron

and

Dave - General of the army - I made something for you...



but in this thread I'll be keeping a running log on stuff that I produce. Yesterday I printed the first of 6 coaster designs, centered on quotes about my favorite topic: alcohol

The plan for these coasters is to sell them in sets of 12, 2 each of 6 different designs. I of course need to print the rest of them as well as design and print the packaging, but that will come in time. Not sure where or how I will sell them though.... gotsta figure that out.

That's pretty cool.

And I will tell you what I WOULD purchase...

If you made a set of coasters in that same style with different cool drinking sayings on each one.

Maybe only ten different ones in all, with a total of 20 in a purchasable set (2 of each quote). That would be ****ing cool. Just my .02
