The Beginning

In 2010 I overheard my dad saying that he had a friend who was looking to pass on a letterpress. Not only a press, but an entire print shop. Although I had never printed before, I had always been in love with the tactile quality of letterpress and I had a feeling I would regret passing it up.

The press wasn’t too eager to be moved, it had been in a basement for close to 50 years and as far as it was concerned, it was going to stay there. It took a solid 17 hours to move everything from that basement in Flint to my newly leased studio space in Kalamazoo with the help of some amazingly dedicated friends. It turns out that was only the beginning of the battle, as it took another few weeks for cleaning and reassembly and several months with old printing manuals and a significant amount of trial and error to teach myself to print on this nearly 100 year old press.
