I love this. I was just talking with my wife about printing things "the hard way". That is, instead of printing something on a 2d printer, generating a 3d model to print it, and then 3d printing that, inking it and printing. And you've gone and done it! Cool.

Instructions

Print out all three pieces and snap them together. Then print out a type-plate ( thing:112899) of your choosing using the customizer and place it in the type holder. For best results, sand down the top of the type-plate slightly to ensure the tops of the letters are flat and even. Place a blank business-card sized piece of paper in-between the tympan and the frisket, ink the plate (a big stamp pad works great) and press down firmly on the tympan to transfer the image.
