We recently purchased a Chandler & Price 8×12 OS Letterpress to add to our letterpress lineup dubbed “Lucy”. Based on the serial number, she was built in 1907 and has been inactive for about 20 years now. We’ll be posting pictures of Lucy up shortly and we’re going to spend our free time for the next few weeks restoring her. We’re going to clean off all the old ink and grease which should bring out the beautiful patina from this 104 years young beauty.
We’re finally here. It will probably take a while to start getting everything online, but we’re getting there. This will officially be the first post for Simply Letterpressed. We hope you enjoy what we’ll be blogging!
