Winding down the summer of 2017

Posted on

What a summer it's been!  We had hundreds of visitors to the printshop, and enjoyed meeting each and every one. Folks from all over the world stopped by to visit the press, share stories of their own interest in printing and books, and learn about the area.

As October settles in, we're winding down regular hours in the printshop.  But we are still  happy to welcome visitors, just phone ahead to make sure someone will be around to greet you.

The printshop will resume regular hours in May 2018.  Looking forward to seeing you then!
