Letterpress Studio

I’ve mentioned that I am renting a letterpress studio starting this month… it has been awesome! I am sharing this space with other talented people and this is the Vandercook Press I’m using.


Ben, who I share this press with, uses soy-based ink and it is 100% non-toxic space, I love it so much! Do you see a vegetable oil under the press? We clean the press with the oil.

The space is big, there are 2 Vandercook Presses and 1 C&P Press. This is our area:


Wood furnitures and such:


A guillotine cutter. This thing cuts papers like crazy! Very dangerous if you don’t know how to use it. The blade is so sharp that you don’t even feel it when your fingers get cut – always gives me goosebumps by just thinking about it!! I am VERY careful around this guy… :)


Happy Letterpressing!
