The Vandercook press census is about to total 2,400 presses. First compiled in 2006. It was thought that it might top out at 1,200. Three years later during the Vandercook Centenary, it was just short of 2,000. Although the pace has slowed in recent years, unknown presses still come to light. Presently, 8.5% of census entries lack serial numbers, which may account for some duplicate entries. The main purpose of touting the total is to encourage press owners to send their serial number(s) and any other information that may be missing. Perhaps, also a few more presses may added.
