Our first twenty-five years

6 January 2010

PartyYesterday was the twenty-fifth anniversary of our first day in business and we celebrated with a party. Not everyone who had planned to join us could make it because of the snow, but we think there were still 60-70 people here. One of them was Phil Baines, who kindly took this photo, as well as some more that he has put on Flickr.

It was a great evening and we’re really proud to have got this far. Now, as well as recovering, we’re getting on with the real reason for being here: printing.

We’re also making some progress with our Monotype installation. All our equipment is here, or nearly all of it, and the machines have been wired in. The next big step is getting the plumbing done. Meanwhile we’re making an inventory of our matrices.

We bought forty cases of metal type and borders, a good range of new Old Face Open in packets and twenty-nine cases of wood letter along with the Monotype. We plan to proof them up over the coming weeks.
