3283RE: [PPLetterpress] Just Getting Started...Is Kelsey A Good Buy For DIY Wedding Invitations?

      I tried using a Kelsey once to print invitations to a holiday party. The
      tabletop press [5x8] was rather light and jiggled some while printing. The
      quality wasn't great - I had a hard time adjusting the tympan and rollers to
      get a nice clean even impression. I was a newbie at the time and had lots of
      trouble. I was fortunate to have access to a Vandercook and ended up using
      that instead.

      Not sure that's helpful...

      A tabletop is fine for printing most type and ornaments onto small cards
      but don't expect to be able to print heavy solids.
      Good luck,
      Ed
