The Old Shebang is bringing the most radical technology in history back to the local community

The Old Shebang is part of the worldwide movement revitalizing letterpress as a beautiful, relevant and vital link to the history of knowledge and communications. We respect the craft developed over centuries and are committed to that body of experience. We are unafraid of embracing the opportunities provided by new technologies such as 3D printing and laser cutting. We love to experiment.



We exist to

  • To work on personal and collaborative publishing projects requiring specialised letterpress equipment.

  • Engage the public in live demonstrations of the letterpress process.
