Has a dastardly curse struck the E.T.Printworks printing press? Has one of our recent stories raised the ire of some Evil Goblin or Wicked Witch who has now wreaked their revenge? Worry not! Enchanted Times Mini is shrinking for a far more benign and practical reason: our miniaturisation is due to growing demand from a small-but-expanding faction of our readership – elves, goblins, dwarves, fairies etc – who find the current page size far too cumbersome for their own diminutive dimensions. Similarly in the Real World, what dollshouse would be complete without a copy of Enchanted Times to complement the miniature environs? Yet the previous size of ETM was all too large for the hands of the majority of dollkind…
Therefore with aspiration only to satisfy our growing Goblin Markets, E.T.Printworks is delighted to present to you the freshly shrunken Enchanted Times Mini, of almost microscopic proportions (barely a quarter of original Mini size at just 3.5 x 4.75cm): The Teeny Tiny Times. The print is still legible to the human eye while the scale is far better suited to our lilliputian friends. Those of a larger stature will of course continue to be catered for, and twinsets of both Mini (original) and Mini (micro) editions will henceforth be available (more to be added shortly).
The first dual-scale issue to be released is December’s ETM, None So Blind, in which Queen Rapunzel initiates the Great Salad Plan and clearly demonstrates that she is not at all bitter. Further news to follow, in the New Year…
Acting on evidence provided by a young hare, the Enchanted Times has just released a new Cover Story notecard relating the heartbreaking tale of the hare’s leveret-hood friend, a Little Fir Tree, who has recently disappeared under mysterious circumstances. According to the elders of his kindle, such wholesale abduction occurs on an annual basis, and more fir tree friends lost over the years than can be counted.
The Missing Tree Mystery Campaign has been launched in a bid to end the trafficking and unacceptable treatment of our beloved forest trees. In order to raise awareness for the Campaign we ask that you, our loyal readers, spread the word to all your correspondents this festive season, and help us make the Missing Tree Mystery global headline news!
April’s subscription issue of Enchanted Times Mini is now available to pre-order! ETM #0.5 v.ii Frogments is a brand new, never-before-released issue featuring the latest Frog Prince claimant and exploring his unexpected connection with Cinderella. A slightly fishy tale of murder, mermaids & madness is also previewed. Further details and additional images can be found here.
Frogments will be available to purchase singly throughout the month of April only so order now to avoid disappointment! (Alternatively, check out subscription options for the latest news once upon a time & time again!)
The time has come, and the E.T.Printworks store is now closed for re-location. We will be re-launching at an as-yet-unspecified date in March, but if you are desperate for the latest old news in the meantime, please visit The Shop of Interest, who are currently stocking a select range of our products, including Truth-Be-Told Mirrors, and some shop-exclusive sampler & gift sets.
Since we announced our January sale at the beginning of the month, we have learned that an anticipated re-location will affect the E.T.Printworks offices a little earlier than anticipated. The Printworks will now be entirely CLOSED throughout the month of February.

As E.T.Printworks strives to bring you all the latest old stories in new news, we also strive to bring you products of the finest quality. With this in mind, we have recently undertaken a series of experiments to determine the best paper on which to print & preserve the stories we bring you. By the end of the month, all Enchanted Times Mini newspapers will be printed on a fine-grade recycled paper (in an elegant off-white shade with all-over speckling) which provides sharper print clarity and truer colour representation for the most pleasurable reading experience.
In the meantime, you can purchase copies of Enchanted Times Mini* at HALF PRICE while stocks of our original, standard paper are sold through. This offer will be available strictly while stocks last so don’t miss the opportunity to catch up on the latest old news and be Behind the Times for a fraction of the usual price!
*offer excludes ETM #3.5 Spin! which will continue to be printed on straw paper
Please look out for additional clearance items to be added to the sale category very soon!
Just added to the ETPrintworks store, the Fast-As-You-Can CoCo have belatedly issued a Christmas card (complete set with envelope, stamp & postmark) to commemorate the Festive FAYC postage stamp design. The card features an actual mini-sheet of santa-hatted gingerbread stamps mounted on the front, and is upcyclable as a postcard by the recipient. A brief introduction to the background of the Fast-As-You-Can Courier Company is printed on the reverse of the card.
