Na 192 jaar stopt deze drukker in Diss (Norfolk) er mee. Opgericht in 1830 en sinds 1874 in het gebouw dat in de video te zien is.

3 gedachten over “Francis Cupiss Ltd and Cupiss Letterpress”

  1. In antwoord op de vraag van Rob:

    I will be retiring from letterpress printing later this year and my company Francis Cupiss Ltd will cease printing during July 2022 after 192 years.
    Following an unsuccessful search to find someone to carry on the business it was decided to cease trading and try and find new homes for the type and equipment gathered by the company over its many years of trading.
    We have managed to find good homes locally for a few items to people we know but this leaves a great deal of other type and equipment available to the letterpress community.
    If this is of interest to yourself I can supply and inventory of the fonts we retain both wooden and metal, (please forward an address). You are also welcome to arrange a visit to see everything.
    We still possess and use the companies original Columbian Press along with a hand operated Guillotine by D J Grieg of Edinburgh (22 inch cut) and a Hampson Betteridge & Co. Printers Stone (30 inches x 48 inches).
    If this is of interest, or you have any questions please feel free to get in touch.
    Offers (buyer collects) accepted up to the 14th August 2022. With successful applicants notified on the 15th August.
    All unsold items after the 14th will then be auctioned by a local auctioneer in a general auction.

    Thank you for your time.

  2. Leuk en uniek. Heb je enig idee waar al die spullen “veiliggesteld” gaan worden?
