The Dead Letter Press was created as an outlet for my desire to work with and create old-world style printed matter. The name is an homage to the print group that I was a part of while studying at Rutgers at the RCIPP. While there I had two great professors and mentors Lynne Allen and Barb Madsen who both taught me about many aspects of fine art printmaking. The master printer, Randy Hemminghaus was also an invaluable resource for any question I had about all printmaking processes.

Below are images of the Heidelberg I own before I spent two months cleaning, oiling and restoring it. It is now in my new studio space in Matawan, NJ along with another Heidelberg and two smaller tabletop hand presses.

I have about 50 cases of moveable type that I acquired from a printer in Brooklyn, NY. I have printed for several letterpress shops in the city including Press New York, Moontree Press and Sesame Letterpress, all located in Brooklyn.

Beyond printing business cards and business identity I can also print entire Wedding Suites, bar and restaurant materials such as coasters and menus, fine art prints, social stationery. The Heidelbergs also die cut, score and perforate many types of paper. Examples are being photographed in my studio to add to the gallery below.
