“PRINT YOUR OWN” – PRINTING PRESS – LETTERPRESS

Oh, the “good old days.” Different businesses had small printing presses for their own needs, and boys were encouraged to start a printing business. I was hooked by the Popular Mechanic’s ads, and did get my first 3×5 Kelsey Press in 1957 at age 11. The Kelsey Co. was the leader with presses, supplies, all paper needs (wish I could find a similar source today) and publications, including its house organ THE PRINTER’S HELPER. This four page publication contained tips, lessons, business hints, and of course some ads. I still have my own issues from 1956 and 1957 that came with my press, and then were mailed to me. I just purchased a print shop and included were these 47 issues of THE PRINTER’S HELPER. I cannot keep everything, and know some new hobby printer, or artist, will enjoy and cherish these. Full list of issues included follows below.

At this time I also have two Kelsey Press outfits for sale. A 3×5 and a 5×8 – email me. And, I have made a PDF of THE PRINTER’S GUIDE BOOK, Published by The Kelsey Company, Meriden, Conn. 8th Edition. This PDF is from my own copy that I obtained in 1957. Forty pages (32 plus 8 supplemental), and everything you need to know to operate your letterpress shop. Happy to send you the PDF for $3. Email me, and I will send you a PayPal invoice. thank you, RAY
