scrap materials for a newbie!

Hello Everyone,

I have just purchased my very first press (a Craftsmen Imperial 5x8) and have been researching papers, inks, polymer plates, cleaning materials, etc. very thoroughly. That said, I am completely indecisive about almost everything!

I am wondering if those of you who are more established might have scrap paper, inks, or old plates lying around that I can practice on. This is my very first foray into letterpress printing and I just want to learn, so I’m not picky!

I live in Washington, DC and can pick up from a reasonable distance. I am also happy to pay for shipping.

Thanks everyone!
