Buying a C&P Letterpress!

Aug 15, 2012   //   by Melissa Coon   //   Blog, Letterpress  //  No Comments

We are beside ourselves and are extremely happy to announce we are buying our very own 10×15 New Series Chandler & Price (C&P) letterpress.

The press was originally manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio in 1916. Even though, the press is 96 years old, she is in really great shape.  Gary, the letterpress printer, who gave me a workshop in July, agreed to nurse the press back to even better health.    We are so thankful to have met Gary. His knowledge for letterpress runs deep, and he is a mechanically genius when it comes to fixing them.

We are still a few months out from completion and delivery. Be sure to check back to learn more about our press’s progress.

Much Love,
