Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dave Hughes

Congratulations, and a big "thank you" from me is due to Forum member @printsmurf who has become the first to qualify for the next tier of rank titles.

Steve (as he is known to the outside world) has posted some great stuff on here and is almost single-handedly responsible for this forum having the largest collection of print-related postage stamps on the web here: Postage Stamps - currently standing at over 300 posts, there can't be many print-related stamps that aren't on there.

But he hasn't stopped there. Steve has posted pictures of coins, trading cards, cigarette cards, phone cards, beer mats, cigar labels, sugar packets and more in the following topics: The Story of Paper, Movable Type, Johannes Gutenberg and his latest Trade Cards, Cigarette Cards, Stickers, etc.

The last one includes one of my recent favourites, a set of 6 trading cards from 1906 showing how the trading cards are made!

For those who are not familiar with the member ranking system, it is based on the number of posts a member makes. Here are the various ranks:

The first tier has little "M" badges (for Metal Type) - the second tier has black crowns.

"Thanks for bringing us some great stuff, printsmurf"
