Meet Chandler! {letterpress}


This is our new baby, a Chandler & Price Platen Press we bought last month from Melanie at Lucky Paperie. Thanks, Melanie! Chandler is the reason for this blog because he is so interesting and we can't wait to get to know him better. If you don't know, he is an antique platen press used for letterpress printing. He was born around 1897, yes, he's old, but he doesn't know it - and he weighs almost 1100 pounds. Thanks to Chuck & Terry Byvik, he was delivered to our home safe and sound.
