Looking for a new kind of Valentine’s Day card?  Look no further than Paper Wheel Press.  How awesome are these cards?

Don’t know ’bout you, but I know someone who’ll be getting the “I love you more than this {iPhone}” beauty!  And for you iPhone addicts folks … you know that’s some serious lovin’ goin’ down!

oh yeah!

My heart went *flutter* when I saw this card on Cathe’s blog!

It’s available at cardstore.com … you can personalize it if you’re lame like that or order as is in all it’s 80′s glory!

And to bring it all home for you … I give you … the theme song from the spinoff of the century {at least in my preteen fantasies} …

so lookie here …

I honestly don’t know what to make of this!  I feel excitement and outrage all at the same time.

A home letterpress machine … really?!?  I’m super curious, that’s for sure.

But as a past stationery shop owner … my heart doesn’t feel right doing this at home.  What about all the designers out there with the real deal?  Working hard on the old-time machines?

Doesn’t this little, do-it-yourself machine cheapen the thrill your finger feels as it fondles that ever-so-gently-kissed indent on the most luxurious of papers?

And yeah … I’m freaky like that.
