1200 lbs. of Cast Iron

Wow! It was such a busy summer/fall… I can’t believe it is already November. I have been wanting to post some photos of the new Chandler and Price Press for quite some time, so I am happy to finally get around to it. This press was built in 1904 and weighs about 1200 lbs. Max had it specially restored and I couldn’t be more excited about how great and smooth it runs.

We started our adventures in letterpress on the a Kelsey 5×8 Model P table top press and although it printed great… it does not compare to the quality of printing that comes out of the new C&P. Lines are crisper, impressions are more even and overall quality is through the roof. We spent the summer getting to know it while printing all kinds of different invitations. We have brand new Namesday cards coming out and we can’t wait to get the Christmas cards finished up. Stay tuned!
