Year You Started with Letterpress
2005
How You Got Involved In Letterpress Printing
<p style="text-align: justify;">A friend, who runs an offset print shop here in Peterborough, purchased a 4 colour heidelberg and was given a platen press as part of the deal. The antique press was to be put on display in the foyer, but that never happened. It sat in storage until the fall of 2005 when it was given to me as an alternative to it ending up in the scrap metal bin at the local recycling depot.</p>
Presses & Equipment
<p style="text-align: justify;">FAG Standard TP550 proofing press, dated 1947 and a Ben Franklin Gordon platen with treadle, dated 1890. 7 cabinets of lead and wood type, with full complement of spacing material.</p>
Education & Training
