Meet The Press

When we bought our letterpress we knew we had to give it an appropriate name. After we finally had it bolted to the floor in the basement and it was all settled in and set up, it was time to pick a name.

It didn’t take long to come up with a suitable name – the name Claude came to mind immediately, in honor of its previous owner, a pressman from Cornwall, Ontario. Chantal changed Claude to Claudette and the name suits her perfectly.


She’s been taken care of perfectly over the years, well oiled and the wooden surfaces are still in great condition. I like to think she runs as smoothly as she did the first day out of the factory in Cleveland, Ohio over 60 years ago.

So, if you ever read something on our blog referring to Claudette, now you’ll know who we’re talking about!
