new addition to the shop

If you follow us on instagram, you probably already got a sneak peek of the newest addition to the shop: a pin perforator dating back to 1883! This machine is perfect for stamp-making, but the Studio Printers have already come up with a few other ideas to test out on it — more on those projects to follow…

Eric acquired the perforator through a printing auction, and it was shipped to us from Red Onion Press. Check out their blog to find out more!

at the case [quarterly]

Now included in the Quarterly mailing is a hand-bound, collaborative chapbook, At the Case. The book is comprised of six poems that were composed in this way: groups of Studio Printers set different parameters for themselves (time limit, line length, type size, etc) and composed poems on the spot.

Although no themes were discussed, it was interesting to see threads of thought run through the the sessions. Little to no misspellings, typos, or other mistakes have been corrected. Poems were printed as they were composed.

As this is a regular practice in the printshop, you can expect to see more At the Case issues in future mailings.
