Tim Ruszel and I went behind the scenes at Estey to watch the press run for our posters. We met the skilled craftswomen and men who run the presses and got a friendly tour of the manufacturing facilities. Estey supports everything from full color digital printing and foil embossing to binding and specialized die cuts. The best part of the tour was seeing how Estey combines the efficiency of modern digital printing techniques with traditional Heidelberg letterpress machines for more tactile and archival effects.
As part of our efforts to support US manufacturers , we will continue, whenever possible, to make all of our products locally or regionally. We enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with practitioners of traditional trades.
Many thanks to Commerce With a Conscience who first recommended that we put our Archival Clothing Resolutions into a purchasable, poster-sized format. CWAC, please enjoy a free poster on us.
Posters are now available to order ($10 includes shipping to most US-locations).
