Print your own Press!

Hi all – –

I thought I’d offer up a link to some fun for your 3 day weekend.

In honor of Vandercook’s 100th, I put together a little papercraft version of my SP20 to share with everyone. Don’t know what papercraft is?

It’s this:

Papercraft Prototype

Make your own SP20 at any size you’re willing to print. Feeling crazy? Scale it up to 1370% and build it life-size! (Your individual impressional strength may vary).

Available as a PDF and an EPS file for infinite-scalability.

The files, larger photo, and legalese are all over at Baltimore Print Studios.

And for the very sharp-eyed, the model above was the prototype version of the final file.
And for the nerds, yes, I printed it on an SP20.

Have a great weekend!

To print one’s press — the ultimate tribute! Thanks, Kyle, for creating this astonishing project. Outstanding!

Very cool, Kyle. This idea is in the air: Ampersand the journal of the Pacific Center for Book Arts will feature a papercraft Universal I in their upcoming Fall issue.

Awesome! This must’ve taken some time to make.

Print on greyish paper, add some blotches of oil and ink, and we could really get a working SP20 :-)

Again, awesome!
