Ekk Lory's comment: "Up to now, I’ve printed my post-cards mainly with the "Thermofax-Screenprinting" (more about on my blog/website).
Also I built a "pasta-press" and then I looked again to several Halfwood Press videos and decided to buy a Mini. I’m working with screen-printing on fabric and paper up to 50 x 70 cm, Letterpress with an Adana 8x5, and, also new, a simple intaglio-press with 50 cm-rolls. Mostly I work with the combination of photography and print."
