A quick update

Hi All, well it’s that time again! I’ll be going in for arm surgery this coming Tuesday and although we won’t know how well it goes until I wake up, I’m confident in my doctor and we’re all hoping for the best. Even though I may be out for a while things are moving ahead… Continue reading A quick update

The Visitors!

I had the pleasure of having the typography students from the Art Institute come in for a shop visit last week.

We’ll still be in the same area, right off Mission Gorge Rd and Highway 8 in Mission Valley, and not… Continue reading Moving on and moving up!

Caveat Emptor!

With the resurgence of interest in letterpress a lot of people are looking to buy small, tabletop presses to use for personal projects. I think it’s great that designers are getting their hands dirty and learning how fun and inspiring a small press can be. But you need to know what you’re buying and who… Continue reading Caveat Emptor!
