Mike Bean, who is retired from the BEP, has demonstrated the Spider Press at many stamp and coin shows. Mike has also printed many Union cards, as well as the Souvenir Card Collector Society annual member cards. These lovely intaglio engraved vignettes are done in very limited quantities, normally 100-200 prints each. Most of these images have appeared on stamp and coin show cards, as well as International Plate Printer's, Die Stamper's, and Engraver's Union cards. These engraved vignettes are very suitable for framing. Like everything I sell, your satisfaction is guaranteed.
