Anyway, if ya'll could spread the word for me that would be great. Here is the link to it.

I had a large old letterpress too. I gave it to a artist friend of mine since nobody would buy it.

It's a settable embosser, like for a seal, such as a notary seal. So you can set it to whatever you want. That's what my hubby says. He's a plethora of info about anything vintage. It gets fun asking him questions. :)

Neat! And I can't believe your dog escaped from the vet! Oh my gosh! She must be a genius or have secret opposable thumbs!
