Letterpress printing video: Heidelberg Windmills, drama, invitations, beauty,

Letterpress printing is so darn pretty that we wanted to share it with the world – so Harold spend the afternoon filming our printer Jake interacting with one of our favorite Heidelberg Windmills as he printed some letterpress invitations — then Harold spent days and nights and days and nights editing the footage down into three really tight seat-gripping minutes of total printing beauty. Enjoy (and make sure to turn the volume up loud so you can dance along to the press sounds)!

  1. Your video of the Heidelberg at work brings joy to an old man’s heart! Two sound-tracks fill my dreams. A red-ball Heidelberg at a modest speed and a Linotype squeezing, grunting and we-hope not squirting. Your presses and your shop look to be clean. Cleanliness is a secret weapon seldom-used in today’s profit-flogged world. In heaven, I will drive a BMW with a Heidelberg paint job. My only negative thought on the video is that I would have preferred to hear the press rather than the music. I have a stereo, but I don’t have a red-ball. Many good impressions during the year ahead. Will Clark
