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 and a print studio. She printed and published her first fine press
editions (including "Sam Hergo, Circus Strongman" by her uncle, Bill
Stipe, in 1996,) and designing trade editions using Photoshop, Illustrator and QuarkXpress. 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, and gave up the large format
letterpresses (wishes she kept the Asbern and Vandercook!) She still prints letterpress using lead type
on a eighteen-sixties Craftsman platen pilot press purchased from Lou Pryor of the Before Press in Arcata, CA.
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
Many Names Press believes in the power of
creativity through published literature & art:
