Many Names Press Printing History & Other Stuff

Kate began as a printer 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 on her own press, including "Sam Hergo, Circus Strongman" by her uncle, Bill Stipe, in 1996, and then produced fine press editions on the offset press and letterpress. The press evolved with the times, so she became a graphic designer using Photoshop, Illustrator and QuarkXpress to send digital files to book printers. She last printed an offset press book in 1999, and gave up the large format letterpresses. She still prints letterpress using lead type found in an abandoned gold rush town in Oregon on a eighteen-sixties Craftsman platen pilot press.
