NEWS: Presses for sale

Kelsey 5x8 "Model U"

KELSEY 5x8 "MOdel P"

Price: SOLD!!!

Price: $1200

Two separate Kelsey 5×8 Letterpress Printing Presses are now available. One is a “Model U”  &  the other is a “Model P.”  They are nearly identical in terms of size, shape, and physical condition. Each of them comes with a starter kit of necessary tools and pieces that should help any beginner really get going on their journey into the exciting world of letterpress.  These presses are in my letterpress studio, which is in Grayson, GA (45minutes East of Atlanta)  I would rather not have to crate these up and deal with the woes of shipping.  These presses weigh about 65 pounds and should fit easily into the trunk of most vehicels, so if you are within driving distance, one of these fellas might get to become yours.    Want to get setup with a cool little press? Send me a note through the contact page.
