  5. I can't wait to hear about the city guide! I've been wanting to take letterpress classes to see what it's about but never had the time to look it up. Is there any chance you would be able to find classes in Pasadena/San Gabriel/ Burbank/Glendale area? Thanks! Can't wait!

  14. Hi Danni,

    I cannot wait for letterpress week! I am so excited to see what you come up with next. I started reading your blog when a friend of mine from Apple, Jen Rusk, turned me on to your work. I work at Apple in Carlsbad :)

    I will definitely post your letterpress announcement on my blog: www.whimsicallywed.com, and I was also gonna do a little feature on your amazing engagement photos!

    Keep up all that you do....I enjoy reading your blog daily!

  17. Hi,

    Lovely idea your Letterpress Week.

    My friend Mark and I have made a lovely exhibition of Letterpress printed work from the Vandercook Centenary print Bundle. Now on display in the William Cullen Library foyer at Wits University in Johannesburg, South Africa, perhaps you have readers from here who would be interested. Runs from 12 to 23 July 2010.
