Words cannot describe how delighted I am that we purchased our very own C&P 10×15 Letterpress.

I am blessed to have the means to start this new endeavor – it is a dream coming true!

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.
For well over a year, all I can think about is letterpress! I finally connected with Gary, a letterpress printer who teaches workshops from time to time. Now is the perfect time to mention the Ren and Stimpy song, “Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy” that played through my head when we finally confirmed the workshop date for July 23, 2012.
