      Julie Holcomb Printers Indeed the *design* is attractive on the Holcomb site but a bit scant on details.

      Yes, the daughter windows are annoying as clearly the web designer is adding
      features, more or less, for features sake. The code is nice and clean anyway.

      Aside from that trifle I got a laugh out of the "guidelines for designers" which
      in total amounted to "yeah, we can work from digital files, make sure there
      are registration marks on all plates". (My words.)

      Well alrighty.

      Clearly it is heartening to see that there is an operation that large printing
      "in relief" though I hesitate to say "letterpress" as one questions if any of
      them would know their way around a case. Half of the "black art" has to do
      with process and an ability to assemble discrete elements (type, spacing &
      leads/slugs) into a cohesive design and printable form. Registration marks?
      What are those? Them's for "process" work...

      One of the little challenges I enjoy the most is running a multi color job on
      the C&P without ever moving my gauge pins. All registration is done on the
      stone with a Schaedler Rule, hopefully in one go.
      (stone is in the dining room, C&P in the basement...)

      Now if she only used foundry type perhaps there'd be a few more Founders
      still extant. Eh, well they'd be machine comping anyway. Still...

      As far as letterpress goes (all things being equal) count me in on the love this site side of things. A clean, well-designed site. Yes, the pop-up windows

        As far as letterpress goes (all things being equal) count me in on the "love
        this site" side of things. A clean, well-designed site. Yes, the pop-up
        windows are a drag. Would you rather have no information at all? Digital or
        metal, god bless em!
