Handset Press

Main work area

Handset Press, the hobby printshop of Dave Tribby in Sunnyvale, California, consists of four printing presses, fourteen cabinets of type cases, and about four hundred galleys of type and cuts. (As the name implies, no Linotype, Monotype, or photopolymer.) The press is used for whatever jobs the proprietor finds of interest: amateur journals, family greeting cards, wedding invitations, calendar pages, or experiments in typography.

I occasionally post items of interest to Instagram.
