ArborOakland Group Commits to the Future by Investing in the Past
ArborOakland Group is excited to announce the completion of a new Letterpress Studio inside the company's recently renovated Specialty Print Center. The Studio features functional printing presses from the 1950's, 60's and even one from 1901.
The company's love of letterpress dates back to the early days, when it was a common method of printing. As years passed and new presses and processes found their way in the world, letterpress declined and nearly disappeared. Today, the very thing that nearly drove letterpress printing to extinction is what has brought it back — the hands' on, custom, classic nature, craved by those looking to make a statement and impression which is found in the old form of printing.
"Investing in a space where the craft lives on was an important commitment to the heritage of printing, even as we invest in the latest digital printing technologies,"
"In a day and age of instant digital marketing and social platforms such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, it seems counter-intuitive to dedicate space to doing things the old-fashion way but the growth of the "Makers" movement and desire for quality products made locally and by hand, are all part of the history, beauty and attraction of letterpress,"
The company is proud to open the doors to the Studio for a Grand Opening on Thursday, September 21, 2017 from 2 – 6 pm. Open to the public, those interested can RSVP online at: https://www.eventbrite.com/
