About This Project

The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has letterpress survived in a digital age?

Captivating personalities blend with wood, metal, type and ink as young printers strive to save this historic process in a film created for the designer, type nerd, historian and collector
in all of us.
