If the action and rhythmic noise of heavy metal does it for you, the Boxcar Press Open Studio is a great place to be. Cast iron letterpress machines that thump, clang and ker-chunk will be on display for free tours on Saturday, November 10th from 10 AM – 4 PM. This family-friendly event has printing demonstrations, crafts, a giveaway, workshop, and paper sales of Smock Paper products.
Boxcar Press celebrates their 20th anniversary this year and welcomes all to step up close to view our presses that weigh over 2,000 plus pounds. We print on all cotton paper to make beautiful invitations. Print shop tours on this day will let you see this in action.
