Just My Type Letterpress

PRINTING BY LETTERPRESS

I have an 1891 Chandler & Price Old Style platen press. I refer to her as my "Victorian-era Stairmaster." (or Vicki for short.)
I also have a 1947 Vandercook 219OS cylinder press. Her name is "Charlie" after my grandpa. She is painted a silvery-green which is close to Grandpa's 1963 Chevy Bel Air that I drove in high school. These days, I am mostly using Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate's 1925 Chandler & Price 10"x15" since I do all the letterpress printing on their packaging.
