Cranking up the Press- I Love You, Mom

It’s about time I got the press and all my new pieces together for a little run-through. No ink this time, but setting the type and tightening the text up with my furniture, quoins and key felt great. And what better line of text to start with than “I LOVE YOU, MOM.” I think we are all reflecting on how awesome our Moms are right now with Mother’s Day only 2 weeks away.
