Thin Ice Press made its debut at the June open days at the University of York. We introduced this exciting new project by having an Adana 8×5 in place at we talked about our plans for the press. As of the 31st of August we have three iron presses in the studio (you can find out more about them here), alongside the 18th century wooden common press once owned by Gent and the beginnings of our reproduction.

Our current focus is to provide a historical introduction to printing in York and ways to directly engage with letterpress. Check out our events page for more information.

An updated page for our creative work is coming soon. We aim for this page to become a showcase of all the projects Thin Ice Press has been involved with, from engagement opportunities to our letterpress work.
