yudu // I did it!


I've been longing for a gocco printer for years. There has always been a good reason to buy one but never a good time (financially) . I have an addiction to printmaking; anything I can do to emboss, stamp, rub, press, transfer an image or type onto a surface makes me, in a sense, high. I'm constantly on the look out for anything that can help me do this. You know those rubber date stamps the librarians used in elementary school... I bought one of those on Monday. I couldn't help myself.

Ever since Amanda mentioned yudu I have been intrigued—could this be the answer to screen printing in my tiny studio apartment? Last night I finally took the plunge (we got our tax return in this weekend!). So, if I'm working on your wedding invites or if you've been thinking about talking to me about baby or graduation announcements, I will soon be able to screen print at will!

*thanks, Caroline for the yudu advise!
