Among our most popular items are our Philly-centric postcards. For some reason, I’ve always had a bit of trouble maintaining tight register on the “From Philly” cards. Well, as more of our fantastic Philadelphia-based customers demand these cards, I decided to try something new. Our good friend Alan has a Heidelberg Windmill (among 9,000 other presses), and this served as a great excuse to get out to Frenchtown, NJ to see him.
Alan gave me a great detailed tour of the crazy German press, walking me through its myriad of adjustments and moving parts as we prepared for, and worked through the printing of the postcards. It’s an impressive machine to say the very least. Those engineers really thought of just about everything a platen press could need. With any luck, I’ll find a way to get one of these suckers in my garage one day.
