It's something for the eyes and hands...

I'm blogging this entry so I can try and win a beautiful set of letterpress invitations.

Dingbat Press (and its blog, The Dingbat's Agenda) is giving away a set of letterpress invitations to everyone who links to their blog.

Letterpress is where the text and designs are printed in such a way onto thick paper that it creates beautiful depressions so there's a sculptural effect to your print. It's not only easy on the eyes, but also feels really cool too.

I would love to get letterpress invitations for the wedding, but they are pretty expensive. So we'll have to look for some cheaper options or decide on something different.

Here are some cool examples...
