Glow-in-the-dark Halloween Type Card
We designed & printed this month's TypeCard in collaboration with Colt to celebrate Halloween. We couldn't resist using our special glow-in-the-dark ink and we finished them off with a glow-in-the-dark edge coloring. Yes you read that right, take one of these bad boys into the closet or bathroom and the edges glow just like the print!

We're also going to be offering up a small stack of these special prints for free ($1 shipping). Snag one of these bad boys while they last by clicking the link below. SOLD OUT

The card features a unique typeface designed by Colt called Quickdeath, what better font for Halloween? Have a favorite font or designer, suggest them below for a future TypeCard feature/collaboration.

Kelsey Excelsior 5x8 for sale 

First, we have to apologize for the lack of posts but we have been swamped with print jobs these past few weeks. We have a few exciting posts planned for the next week so stay tuned for more information on that. Getting down to business, we posted last week about two small presses that we have for sale and finally got everything together today to photograph the larger press. This press is a Kelsey Excelsior 5×8 letterpress in great condition. Above is a photo of the press and accessories which include a wide variety of wooden furniture (a lot more furniture not shown), many quoins and a key, one chase, a variety of type (not shown), two rollers (need to be recovered) and metal trucks in a wooden box (not shown), and 3 galley trays.

Here are some more photos of the accessories and close-up shots of the press:

As you can see from the photos, the press is in great condition and is ready to be used. The platen, chase, ink disk, and press bed are all smooth and free from defects and rust. The press comes with one fully functioning gripper arm, unfortunately one of the arms must have been lost by the original owner. While this press can be shipped we will give preference to those who can pick it up in Ithaca, NY or Long Island. Please contact us with an offer for the press and accessories as a set.
