I got started on this letterpress project and now I have a mess. I forgot to plan for clean up. duh! If I order the stuff from Letterpress it is going to take a week and cost $12 for shipping. Anybody have any idea what I can use that will get rid of the ink without damaging the plates? TIA

You can use baby wipes too if you have those around.

But to be perfectly honest, the Lifestyle crafts wipes work the absolute best. We've tried a few things at the store too, and they just are the best.

We have them in stock, and our shipping is flat rate of $7.25 using Priority Mail so hopefully only 2-3 day ship time. Just click on the link to my blog and you'll see the store.

I recommend the Lifestyle Crafts wipes too... They just work better instead of fighting with it. If you need a 20% off coupon code for them let me know.
