Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dave Hughes

I'm sure I've featured a video of Earls Hayes Press on Metal Type before, but I can't find it, if it exists.

If it did exist, it wouldn't have been this one, which was published in July 2023. Published by a guy who must be fairly well known, Adam Savage, with over 6 million followers. It's a great video for letterpress fans, and Hollywood movie fans alike

QuoteAdam Savage visits the warehouse of The Earl Hayes Press, where for over a hundred years this prop house has been making Hollywood's printed props. Fake newspapers, magazines, currency, and product labels all came from the printing presses of this shop. Historian and archivist Michael Corrie of @PropsToHistory walks Adam through some of the iconic props that originated here, from Back to The Future II's memorable sports almanac to the bearer bonds created for Die Hard!
