I had to repost this because I’m like a kid on Christmas Eve right now. My friend Matt is building me a beauty of a vacuum table, complete with squeegee racks, dark box/ storage, and ink shelves. I can’t wait to see its completion and screenprint the backlog of work I’ve got in the design queue.

Printers workbench all cut up and ready to start going together tomorrow. Some really nice strait and tight grained fir will make up the bulk of the structure. I have some reclaimed oak flooring and cabinet doors that will also be used. It will be going to a good home - the studio of a working artist.
letterpress project. They’re far from perfect, but as I enjoy an evening cocktail (complete with paper umbrella), I can report that they work just fine. Bottoms up! Details coming soon on how these will be released in Atlanta.
Reposting this in an effort to help get the word out that this neighborhood treasure is facing the wrecking ball unless the community acts and helps save it. This is two blocks from my home, and I’ve enjoyed many a cuppa joe there, as well as live music and canine company. This place and this community matters.

Today dozens of community activists came together to HeartBomb West Seattle's C&P Coffee Company. The historic craftsman houses a beloved coffee shop (which turns 15 tomorrow) and is faced with demolition after being put up for sale as a development site.
Owners Cameron & Pete have put in a bid, which we hope will be successful!
