Not planning on using such fancy stock as the Museo Rag but I'm also curious to know if you'd do the imprints before or after the inkjet printing. I always thought running the pre-printed inkjet paper through a proof press would be easier than the other way around, as any oils from handling while doing the letterpress might dangerously affect the quality of inkjet printing, not to mention dirt or grime going through an inkjet printer after the fact?
