I finally got a letterpress (two actually)

Over the weekend we had a few additions to our little family. I would like to introduce you to my babies. This is my Chandler and Price floor model. It weighs 1200 pounds and is in working condition.

This is my Vandercook Proof Press. It weighs 2400 pounds and needs a lot of work. {These pictures were taken in the studio that I share with Paul.} Aren’t they beautiful? I’m so excited I can hardly stand it.

    if this isn’t impolite, how expensive do these machines run?

    It varies depending on if they are in good shape or not. The C&Ps run anywhere from $300-$1200 and the Vandercooks anywhere from $2000-$6000.

    I miraculously got mine from a guy who gave me an AMAZING deal. But normally all the dealers charge the above prices.

    If you would have asked the same question ten years ago they would be much cheaper.

    By the way…did you find out about the Zumreed headphones? If you know someone in Japan I would love to get a pair. 🙂

    Can’t wait to see the work you produce with it, so nice to have a studio to accommodate a large print press (or presses). Best wishes for the new year!
