terminal degree

Why no prints for sale? 

Received a kind inquiry on Instagram the other day asking if I still sold prints. Short answer: not currently. I still have a small print shop, but I don’t spend much time there these days  

I plan to print again someday, but I’m currently knee deep in scholarly research and studies...I am working on my doctoral degree. The pursuit of this terminal degree means that I simply do not have time to print at the moment. 

Trust that I miss printing terribly. Sometimes, when I take a short break from my studies, I’ll sneak into the workshop just to play with my founts. But, locking up type and inking the press–and the paper trimming and the cleanup that accompanies a solid print run–is a commitment. And, I’ve committed to my doctoral studies...for another two years...


I thought I'd be cranking out prints for the holidays. But, nope

My apologies to those of you who inquired about print availability. I won't bore your with details, but let's just say there are a lot of things happening in my life right now that are keeping me from the printshop.

This means that letterpress has been placed on the back burner for a while. The print below pretty much sums up my life right now.

Damn, I miss printing. I'll get back to it one day. 'Til then....

print availability

status update: 

prints available in late November 2019 

Lots of other things happening in my life. Not bad things, but those things mean that print work takes a back seat. 

Looking back at previous posts, it seems like this site is one long apology with a few pictures for clarity. I suppose those apologies are meant for the kind people who have inquired about purchasing prints. I am still humbled by those requests. Thank you.    

Since this time last year, I've also encountered a few mechanical issues with the three platen presses I operate. But, that’s expected when working with 75-100 year old equipment. 

Upside: I will have some quality time in the printshop in October and November. Just a few short months away. And, I will be cranking out a bunch of prints as I calibrate the presses.
