We're in love with our new Inspector Stamp, the latest product offering from the official letterpress printer of Northcoast Zeitgeist, Cranky Pressman. The stamps are small (the live area is a little less than .75"), portable, self-inking, and are available in three colors. And they're now for sale - for the nice price of $23. We've already been putting our stamp to good use. They're perfect for the return address area of an envelope, as seen above. They're also going to be helpful in editioning limited runs of artwork - much nicer than my terrible handwriting.
Keith and Jamie at Cranky Pressman were kind enough to let us get our hands on an Inspector Stamp a little early, and I already can't wait to order another for Casey, who's got a home library's worth of academic books to claim as her own. So run, don't walk, to Cranky Pressman and order your own Inspector Stamp. And remember, the medium itself poses a unique set of challenges, so be sure to read Cranky's handy fine print before you get started. Thanks again, Keith and Jamie, we love seeing our design come to life.
