We had a lovely visit to see our dear friend Philip Chrisp today at his Letterpress Atelier EE.Chrisp. We have known Phil and his family since the late 60s early 70s when our families had ateliers more or less next door to each other in the early days, in Manchester.
Our family are Master Watchmakers and Philips family are masters of the letterpress, and they used to contra trade their services with each other, which was quite common in those days and still is today
We have worked with Philip on and off, getting on for nearly 30 years. This time, we are having all our Joe & Co Denim letterpress swing tickets, pocket over-riders & stationary produced on the original 'HEIDELBERG' printing machines from the 1850s for our 'WORKERS' Project
This is a very time consuming and expensive process, however the quality that is produced is understandably worth the wait
If your interested in our timepieces or what we are doing for Joe & Co Denim, you can sign up for our newsletter at
Where we will be posting more info on this project later in the year
