Presses: the Heidelberg Windmill.
Experience: 3.5 years on letterpress. 25 years printing generally.
Learning: I started printing at Edrow Business Forms — over in East Syracuse — and Nick Amadeo taught me how to print.
Print shop essentials: two screwdrivers and a cup of coffee in the morning.
Best letterpress trick: the right packing and a little tape makes all the difference.
Printing space: I’ve got a little avocado tree growing in my workspace.
Favorite part of letterpress printing: when the job is done and done right.
Least favorite step of the letterpress printing process: nothing comes to mind — I love everything about it. Getting colors right can be a little frustrating at times, but that’s about it.
Music of choice when on press: Classic Rock on the radio, and on Saturday mornings, the Beatle Brunch.
Extracurricular activities: I love camping and the outdoors, and love to spend time at our camp up in the Adirondacks.
