Good one. (As usual I'm a day late and a dollar short, even here on
the listserv--guess that means the press name is apropos)

Our other press name idea bantied about was Hodgepodge Printing.
Like other letterpress shops starting out on big dreams, long odds,
and a shoe string budget,
we were basically going at it with what equipment and type we could
scrounge or buy up within a day's drive, most of which were dusty
discards from the commercial printing world of decades past. I'm
curious if anyone has ever run across a printing outfit with the name
Never have come up with an apt description for the type of studio/
shop we are.
Merely deciding on studio vs. shop was enough to abandon the
H O R S E & B U G G Y P R E S S
Letterpress printing and more--for the jet age and beyond.
