Running Windmill

The sleep machine is running, unaware it is being watched. Long out of production, this Heidelberg 10 x 15 windmill letterpress still runs smoothly & precisely with the loving care it has been given over the decades. If you listen closely, you can hear it breathing & purring as ink is pressed to downy white cotton paper.

Happy Surprise Gifts

Our friend Kent from Nomadic Press sent in these gifts of a printshop game called Quad Rats. The object is not to let the boss find out you’re playing with quads so you hide them in your hand under the composing taable until tossing them quickly to see how they land – nicks facing up, standing upright or in a stack. As we quickly found out, Quad Rats is addictive so after work, we’ll be camping out and playing all night. Thank you ever so much for the lovely gifts, Kent!!

Dave is running the Heidelberg KSBS cylinder press

Much like a lion-tamer, Dave persuades the press to do fancy tricks: match Pantone, don’t feed too fast, get the right amount of air flowing.
