New Guillotine!




After a few nervous minutes on ebay last night, I now have a new guillotine. It was pickup only, so I didn't have to wait long to see it. I've now sliced and diced every spare piece of paper in the house, as well as the Varied Noisy postcards. It cuts clean and straight and is perfect. Very happy, as this will save me a LOT of time.

So tonight I'll be cutting up business card sized paper for Donna in Brooklyn for her cards that I'll be posting on Tuesday. Stay tuned for photos.

During the week I had some clear and white-backed stickers printed for my postage items. Very handy things to have lying around the studio:

hi louise
Great to hear you have a guillotine now. It looks similar to what i have I found it a bit tricky to use.. as I'm using digital printing, and it's always taking the paper differently each time.
But I think it should be ok for letterpress.

fifi - mine will cut a ream of office paper really smoothly, but for BFK Rives paper, it can spin the paper and cut it crooked. Trial and error.

Paper stories - it's a Fordigraph 430M.
