Its pretty few and far between when you come across a working letterpress. My buddy Rich was kind enough to show me the ropes. I never realized how endless the options were when working on a letterpress. It is quite a unique and personal experience. If you have ever been interested in any type of printing and have never been to a letterpress, I suggest you find one.

I think I found a new interest.
