After Quickutz released the “Epic Six”, their best universal die-cutting machine in July, they created a new division of QuicKutz, Inc., Lifestyle Crafts (L), to bring a letterpress printing combo kit coming fall of 2009.
Sandy, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/16/2009 -- Quickutz released their best universal die-cutting machine yet this July of 2009 surpassing all die-cutting machines in size and scope. The Epic 6 is already hitting stores like http://www.ucutathome.com/ with huge popularity among all types of crafters. The card makers are really loving the Epic Six because of its versatility in cutting and embossing ALL Quickutz dies as well as other leading brand dies. Now Quickutz Inc. has taken it a step further in their originality with Lifestyle Crafts to announce a letterpress printing combo kit, which will include the Epic Six die-cutting machine. Because of size, price and lack of availability to a traditional letterpress machine, this was not available to the daily home crafter until now with the introduction of the Epic Six. This kit along with other products used to create greeting cards, invitations, printing stationary, and other projects will be available in fall of 2009. Although many online stores already have it out for pre-order like http://www.ucutathome.com/. Marcie Mower, the owner of Cut@Home said, “This was a great move by Quickutz. Letterpress printing with the Epic Six will be the hottest new thing among crafters”.
So what is letterpress printing for those that may not know? Well if you have seen the movie Seven Pounds with Will Smith, the rare Heidelberg press he fixes for Emily Posa (Rosario Dawson), who is a self-employed greeting card printer, is a letterpress printer. Letterpress printing uses high quality papers and inks, which make impressions of letters or designs that punch into the paper, creating a raised or debossed effect on the back of thick soft paper.
Cut@Home, http://www.cutathome.com, based in Utah, specializes in carrying only the best die-cutting machines, cutting dies, embossing dies, card making supplies, and scrapbooking paper on the market!
