Meanwhile, I typically rely on the good ol' linocut, which is fantastic for images - even small ones. But for text... It can be tough to carve tiny letters even in the butteriest of linoleum. And messing up is heart-wrenching. So, I generally tend to skip text all together, and rely on torn out words from old novels.
But today I need a really nice "Thank You" card... one that is handmade... by me.
|First try with inkjet.|
I found a pretty font, made some calculations based on my envelope and desired placement, and hit print.
I like the result enough. Now I'm wondering... "could I fit a tiny linocut print on there?"

My little linocuts don't quite work with the perfectly centered text... But if I just move the text over and down a bit... voila`!
I love it!
Honestly, this inkjet success only makes me want a printing press that much more.
