I’m finishing up this year’s Christmas cards and I’m excited about how they are turning out.
I ran into Paper Source a few weeks ago to buy my blank envelopes and some decorative paper. I almost came home with one of these embossers.
For about $30 you get the equipment. For about $30 more you get a personalized plate. The contraption blind embosses paper with your custom image (so it’s bumped out – sort of like braille, although I think you can get in so the text so it presses in, for the letterpressed look).
The lady at Paper Source was trying to sell me on the advantages of a return address plate, but I know better than that. We move so often in this family that I’d be spending the kids’ college fund just to keep the embosser plates current!
