Acerca de tu anfitrión

I'm a Chicago raised, blue collar, Navy vet, who's love of pre digital machinery along with a urge to create, led me down the rabbit hole of Letterpress printing. I'm member #908 of the Amalgamated Printers' Association. I'm no expert, or even an artist, but I love sharing letterpress with others who 'get-it', and want to get 'hands-on' in the creation of unique and special things, rare today.

Qué haremos

You'll imprint ink onto paper using my antique printing press and a form of metal type, handset & composed by you! Once here, in my home printshop, I'll introduce you to my printing press, it's history and how I ended up with it in a spare bedroom of my mid century home.

¿Hay algo más que deba saber?

Qué incluye

Refrigerios
chips, pretzles, rasins! While I may not always have all three, I always have snacks around to share with guests and friends. Salty AND Sweet!
Bebidas
water, coffee, soda While we refrain from eating or drinking in the printshop, there's no reason for you to go thirsty. I'll wet that whistle.
Equipo
Press, ink, & paper Keep what you make! It can be framed! If you don't finish, sorry, nothing for you. Have faith though, I'm a good teacher!

Dónde estarás

The entire experience takes place in the printshop of the Pinch Point Press, which is also a spare bedroom in my home. We're located in Madison Wisconsin just a few miles from I-90. Probably a two to three hour drive from The Loop, but boy is it worth the trip. I host AirBnb too, so stay the night
