Many Names Press Printing History & Other Stuff

Kate began as a printer 35 years ago in 1981, working and developing her offset printing skills in many printshops, while learning the letterpress on her own. In 1993, she formed her own business, Many Names Press, as a commercial printery. She printed and published her first fine press editions (in 1996, "Sam Hergo, Circus Strongman" by her uncle, Bill Stipe,) designing trade editions using Photoshop and Quark Xpress. The press evolved with the times, so she became a graphic designer and sends digital files to book printers instead of printing them herself. She last printed an offset press book in 1999, gave up the large format letterpresses (wishes she kept the flatbed,) but prints letterpress art on a small platen pilot from the 19th century.

Many Names Press provides experienced writers, poets and artists with services big name publishers and self-publishing businesses will not. With special emphasis on feminist, historical, social, economic and environmental art, the press produces limited edition letterpress books, chapbooks and broadsides of fine art and poetry as well.

  The press believes in collaborating with her authors about content, look relevance, quantity, marketing, publicity, booksignings and other aspects. This effort of the press, and the authors' full participation, guarantee its success once the book is printed.

Publishing a book or two a year by accepting work with complete galleys and credible marketing plans by way of mouth, through friends, acquaintances and fellow poets, Kate wholeheartedly maintain support for her authors and indie booksellers by actively engage in local commerce and culture, and by working with locals (and some women friends and poets like the amazing Louise Grassi Whitney of Napa who wrote “Wet Welded Together"), and as Becky Taylor says, who lives directly above Bookshop Santa Cruz, “can’t get more local than that!
