A friend and I are both avid letterpress makers.
While she loves letterpress and printing stationery she is not a big fan of embroidery.
She thought she could do something about that with the help of Amazon’s free letterpress starter kit.
So we did.
We started with a few items from our own stash and made our own letterpress templates.
Then we added a few things from Amazon.
These are the items we ended up with:A letterpress template from Amazon: A basic letterpress project that can be used for all kinds of projects.
A letterpads template from Etsy: A letterpress kit that includes everything you need to start your letterpress journey.
A set of letters from Amazon to make your own letters from scratch: A simple, yet functional set of letterpress paper templates.
We’ve found these templates easy to print and easy to follow, and they were a perfect starting point for our letterpress projects.
But the next step was to learn how to create your own letterpressed stationery.
Here are the steps we took to make our own letters stationery from scratch.
Here’s a guide to how to do it:Step 1: Get a good template of the letterpress materialYou can buy letterpens from most letterpress stores.
Some may also carry embroideries.
Here’s a good place to start: Amazon’s letterpress package includes both embroiderry and letterpress.
If you’re not comfortable with the word letterpress, there are many other words that you can use.
Here are some suggestions: letterpress , letterpress letter , letterpaint , letterprinted , letterprint , letterpen , letterplate , letterspon and letterspray.
Step 2: Create your own embroideried letterpress patternIf you don’t want to spend a ton of money, you can create your very own letter-press stationier with just a few lines of code and a couple of scraps of paper.
This is a good project for beginners, and it’s an excellent way to get started in the embroidering game.
The project requires a little more skill than it looks, so we’re not going to cover it here.
Step 3: Get your stationery readyYou can do a lot with the basic stationery you already have.
You could make a couple extra letters to make a wedding stationery and make your wedding band, or you could make an extra set of buttons to create a letterpress wedding dress.
There are plenty of stationery projects you can do with stationery like this, and we’ve rounded up some of our favorites below.
Step 4: Create a letter-printing stationiere from scratchHere’s what you need: a sheet of paper (you can use your favorite printer)A ruler and paperclipsA paper towel and a pen (you could use a marker if you don’ want to draw the letters)Step 1.
Find the right size paperThis is a common mistake beginners make.
They think that paper is too small.
But if you have a lot of letters on your stationer and you want to have a wide variety of designs, you should go for a sheet with a size that fits your letterhead.
If you’re unsure about how many letters you have, you could use this free printable letterpress planner to check.
Measure and cut your letters (optional)Once you have your letter stationery on paper, cut out letters to fit your letter head.
This step is important because you can’t cut letters for your letter to fit the rest of your letterheads.
Sew your letter designs to your stationers stationeryThe first step to sewing your letter-prints is to cut out the letters.
This will give you a starting point, but you’ll want to make sure that your letter shapes are perfect before you start.

There’s no way around this: keep your printer and your stationerettes from getting smashed.
