Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dave Hughes

Wirebids have this very rare (possibly unique) press up for auction currently. It is a very unusual press and is 10 feet long.

It looks like it was designed to print on a reel or web of paper using a conventional platen, but I may be wrong.

At the time of writing, the reserve hasn't been met. See the auction here: Lot #88: Letterpress 10x15 C&P OEM Web Flow Press

The web flow C&P at auction in the current newsletter is mine.

It is the 10x15 format with a locked platen. Manufactured by C&P. It runs webs (rolls of paper). Unwind then rewind. Likely manufactured for label printers or some one who produces a lot of the same type of product. Ted
