Making Of: Body Futures 6-Panel Wallet

We go way back with the peeps from Body Futures and
we’re thrilled to work with them on their new cd project
“Maybe it’s Just the Weather” This video walks through
the finishing process of making their disc.

Making Of: The People Brothers Band Package Set

The People Brothers Band was aiming for a really custom package set. We did a 6-panel tube digipack with an 18 panel poster on the inside. The digi itself has a specific UV coating for an extra glossy appearance. The letterpress poster was printed on both a Vandercook 219 for all of the handset type […]

Erin Edmister and 3 Tons

We just finished up this sweet handset cd sleeve and poster combo for Chicago’s Erin Edmister and 3 Tons. I love the picture of the lockup on the disc face. Check out the making of video on our facebook page or our Youtube channel.

The Miehle V36

Here you see our new (to us) Miehle Vertical V36. The mechanical wonder was built in 1926. We found it and brought it in from a scrap yard. Now that we’re finally in our new location, we were able to pull it off of the pallet that it was stored on and put it on […]

Printers In Print

Now that we’re getting settled in a bit more to the new shop, it’s been great to get back into the swing of things. Shortly after our move, we were interviewed by In Business Magazine; a regional publication that is going on 40 years now! We didn’t know that we were going to get the […]

Our Friends The Savages!

This was a neat project we did for Our Friends The Savages! We did a full set for them with their music. The 4-panel wallet CD package is printed on Kraft stock alongside a 12″ vinyl package. The vinyl package features a really custom owl printed on our 1940 Vandercook press. Afterwords it was custom […]

RED Business Card

Printing the Rogers Eckersley Design (RED) business cards was a really fun and engaging project for us. We did it all, between the layout of handset metal type, die-cutting the paper stock with a custom design, and printing. We printed on these with a Chandler & Price press from 1899! RED is a graphic design […]

Flannel Fest 2016

Last weekend Flannel Fest returned to the High Noon Saloon for it’s 2016 shin-dig with a great line up of bands. For this years poster we used a sweet variety of wood and metal typefaces and some freshly cast border pieces courtesy of Skyline Type Foundry. Five tuscan faces! Yowza! Here’s a short video done […]

3226 Commercial Ave.

3226 Commercial Ave. I purchased this little blue house on Madison’s east side last month to tear it down and build a new facility for Sooper Dooper. We recently purchased 3 new presses (one digital and two letterpresses) and are just bursting out of our already cramped space. This little blue house has some history […]
