Denver: Foils and Dies

FOILS + DIES / Vintage Pressworks: 999 Tejon Street, Denver, Colorado 80204.

This press is an authentic replica of a 1770’s English Wood Common Press. It is modeled after the Ben Franklin press that is displayed at the Smithsonian. We contracted Steve Pratt, a noted craftsman, to custom build this press for our studio. It took Steve four and a half years to complete the project and it arrived here on July 2, 2007 – just in time to reprint the Declaration of Independence for July 4, 2007!

The press was for sale on May 9, 2016 for 24.000 USD.
