Our lab space

After Ray's retirement from teaching we started to dream of a 1,000 square foot space away from the house that we could equip a working letterpress museum. In February 2008 we rented 120A Sandy Drive, Newark, Delaware, a 2,200 square foot space. We've been there ever since.

We are in the end of the building closest to the Sandy Drive. Our name is on the door. Normally you can park right at our studio and enter from the parking lot.
