Your host



I'm a Chicago raised, blue collar, Navy vet, who's love of pre digital machinery along with a urge to create, led me down the rabbit hole of Letterpress printing. I'm member #908 of the Amalgamated Printers' Association. I'm no expert, or even an artist, but I love sharing letterpress with others who 'get-it', and want to get 'hands-on' in the creation of unique and special things, rare today.

Where you'll be

The entire experience takes place in the printshop of the Pinch Point Press, which is also a spare bedroom in my home. We're located in Madison Wisconsin just a few miles from I-90. Probably a two to three hour drive from The Loop, but boy is it worth the trip. I host AirBnb too, so stay the night

More tips

We'll be working with ink that can and will stain anything, forever. A ink fight is not on the agenda, but accidents can get messy. I have gloves and printers aprons you can use, but, ink is sneaky.
