Second times a charm. ✨ Latex printer delivery today. Marge will be climbing the stairs of Sharp all the way to the 11th floor. Quite the workout for her first day on the job. 😬


This is it! The last 4 Kacie Lees Riso prints for our Fold publication are on the wall! Come and get β€˜em!!


New Metallic Gold ink samples available on the Riso Wall! This ink really works best on our darker media.


Well kids…bit of bad news. Marge was set to be delivered today but we noticed a giant dent in the box. Unfortunately, that meant there was a giant dent in Marge. 😩 We will be awaiting a new printer … minus dents …. for future delivery.


β€”β€”-> is hosting a button making workshop tomorrow!!


We will all have to hold our pants on while we have the new latex installed and set up by our dear friends at but the techs are giddy with the prospects of new materials. Including this Holographic Sticker material from that we received this week!! πŸŒˆπŸ˜±πŸ‘€πŸŒˆ
