About the Press:
The 1906 C&P 8 X 12 was purchased from a turnkey letterpress shop in Santa Cruz, CA and was successfully moved to our new studio at 17th Ave Studios January 2014. This will become our work horse for all our larger run jobs.
Our Golding Pearl no 11, Built in 1902. We found the press in Richmond, CA in a garage and it was in a pretty rough state. It wasn’t being used and a restoration was needed… parts have been hard to find but we consider it a responsibility to put her back together again. It now runs smoothly.
Our smallest addition is a tabletop platen press .. fun for demos and smaller print pieces.
And last but not least we have just acquired an Ettan etching press which will allow us to work with larger format prints.
