I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of this letterpress, because I want to take my card making to the next level. I think, overall, the press concept itself works well. However, I'm not so sure about the Lifestyle Crafts design pieces. They come with a peel-off adhesive that is used to keep the pieces in place when pressing. However, the adhesive seems to soak up ink, and makes the final product blotchy. I'm investigating having my own pieces made elsewhere, and they come with a reusable adhesive surface already applied. Once I try that process, I may be a bit more satisfied. I'm also going to try ink from a different source, as the letterpress ink with this product is rather challenging to use. Baby wipes work fine to clean up the mess so you don't have to purchase the expensive brand name wipes. I think I will like it after these modifications are made. The concept is a great one, and it works with my Big Shot.
