Our oldest press was born in 1889 and is a beauty. We run our presses manually, without the use of electricity.
We hand mix our inks which are vegetable based and omit minimal air pollutants.
We clean our presses using natural solvents which are gentle to our skin and on the environment.
We use 100% tree-free, reclaimed cotton paper which is recyclable and renewable. Cotton is an annual crop and requires very few natural resources and energy to grow and make into paper, unlike wood or bamboo. It is luxurious and the most perfect compliment to letterpress printing.
We are committed to proper disposal. We recycle every scrap piece of paper and old plates. We also use cloth rags for clean up.
