Vandercook 3 for sale (SOLD)



Vandercook No 3 for sale. The press is in very good condition and has been kept indoors in a dry climate. It probably could use new ink rollers (2) depending on your requirements. Price for the press alone: $7,500 OBO (not including shipping).

If you’re interested in a bundle, I can offer the press with supplies and equipment needed to start printing right away – including wood type. Bundle alone has over $1,500 worth of equipment/supplies. Located in Brooklyn, NY in an easy-access elevator building. Price for the bundle: $8,000 OBO (not including shipping).

Ideally you’re located in the New York area or thereabouts. If you’re more than 100 miles outside of the Brooklyn area, it is recommended that you have the unit crated for shipping. If you’re within 100 miles, I have contacts for experienced movers.
