- Hi Rebecca!
Be really careful with that C&P and your aluminum base!
It's a good idea to plan on printing on press sheets which are over-
size, to accommodate your design and plenty of "gripper" so you can
put your gauge pins well away from the edge of the al-base.
It's real easy to smash the pins into the base!
Any particular fonts (sizes, families) of type you're looking for?
