The big press move


In 2009 I bought a giant letterpress. Initially I had it moved into a studio space, and a year later, after reinforcing the floor of my shop and removing a wall - I had it moved again. Buying this press and getting it into Ferdinand are the best decisions I have ever made. 

The letterpress is beautiful! It was built in 1955 and I am the 3rd owner. It runs on 220 electricity and once it's going can produce a print a second. It took 8 people and a forklift to bring it into Ferdinand, and now it is here to stay! Luckily I have documentation in film by Bryan Bruchman.
