Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


If it wasn't for generous donations we would have little or nothing at Pimpama. The machines illustrated were all donated to the South Coast Restoration Society on Queensland's Gold Coast.  We spent a lot of time restoring them and enjoyed every frustrating minute of it. There are anumber of other machiness that have been restored or are being restored.

So if you are on the Gold Coast on Sunday September, 12. come and see us.

On the Gold Coast any Thursday morning we are usually there working on old machines that played an important part of letterpress printing. Even if it is only an old typewriter, that was used to type copy to be typeset.

You can find us at
"Heritage Park" 193 Rifle Range Road, Pimpama, Gold Coast, Queensland.
From the M1 Motorway take exit 49.
At the traffic circle, on the western side of the M1, turn left onto Rifle Range Road.
At the traffic lights turn right into the park and immediate left, and up the hill.
