The studio shop consists of 2000 square feet with seven letterpresses and five type casting machines. With over thirty cases of antique wood type and 100 cases of hand type we can accommodate most needs. The shop is not a museum although most of the equipment is old, we use all the machines at various points in production.

SERVICES


Our facility is steeped in the letterpress fine book production tradition but much of the work these days is fine art printmaking combining typography with image. Poster  and broadside production  have become  regular jobs for us.   Alternative process photography has been a long time interest for David and part of the studio is set up for that.

We offer a Master Printer Training Program, bringing talented printmakers to a level of professional expertise that can be used to work in the printmaking field. Visitors are welcome by appointment.

We are located in the Bakery Studio Building in Portland, Maine surrounded by a very active art community. In addition to the press room we have a clean room used for processing finished prints and classes run regularly.
