How You Got Involved In Letterpress Printing
It has been a family trade since the 1970's. I am now a 3rd generation printer that has been exposed to printing since birth. From falling asleep as baby, listening to the monotonous sounds of printing machines to becoming a part of the business, bringing in new ideas and methods of printing as an adult. Being a letterpress printer was pretty much set in stone.
Presses & Equipment
Heidelberg Windmill 10 x 15 red ball, Unknown Standing Floor Unit 8" x 10", Kelsey Excelsior 5 x 8, Adana 5 x 8
Education & Training
Apprentice for 2 years with a printer of 60 years experience from Kok Wah Press / Fook Kee.
Work History
I have 14 Years of Printing knowledge and experience. Currently, a consultant to many design firms in Singapore. While running corporate jobs to fund the company, I frequently hold large events for the general public as well as those in print industry. My goal is to bridge the gap between that of the Designer and Printer.
Other Interests & Hobbies
Ever since the arrival of my son Tyler. I have dedicated most of my free time to him. I take him out to sea on our little boat as often as I can, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
