An Informal Guide to the Heidelberg Windmill

I'm Sara, the Snail Mail Superstar. I'm a greeting card designer, letterpress printer and stationery shop owner. First and foremost, I love snail mail! In this video, I'm showing off my 1970 Original Heidelberg Windmill printing press, Heidi. I use her to do some sweet, sweet letterpress printing for large quantities of cards. Or in this instance, note sheets for our series of From The Desk Of Notepads! Note: this is an informal tour of the press, without all the stuffy printing terms that I know, but you probably don't need to know. Don't come for me, old school letterpress printing crowd. It's a tour for letterpress beginners and printing tourists! ;)

The notepads I'm printing in this video.
