words of advice

Hi Friends, it is crazy manic here at the moment with way too many things on the go at once, and far too many things going wrong - Letterpress sure can be one big frustrating adventure. But taking words of advice from the press are keeping calm and keeping our blower holes clean. It is after all, very important.

Also I have been meaning to tell you, we officially named our new press Helga. Such a beast of a lady, it seems such a fitting name. Strong, bulky and quite the brute of a girl. In her heyday I reckon she would have worn breeches and been the strong lady at the circus. What do you think?

Many thanks to The House of Dust and Fur for the naming suggestion!


  1. Cute name and the same as Jay Dee Dearness' Heidelberg Windmill Letterpress over at Myrtle Street Studio... Maybe they're related?

  2. Ha! Helga is a very suitable name! It makes me think of a Russian farmer/bodybuilder with massive thighs.

    Thanks for sharing!
