Brittany, Lauren and I attended the Event Crashers Open House down in Franklin yesterday. Jay Williamson is the owner and has done a fabulous job of taking his grandfathers press and creating an entirely new business with it. Specializing in amazing letterpress printing, Jay has created a fantastic specialty. He even printed Lauren’s wedding invitations this summer. During the open house, his son created personalized cards with each of us, laying out each letter of our name from the case. I loved watching the press run, and seeing the cases of type—one for each size and typeface. There is something about seeing this complex machinery from the early 20th century creating beautiful things that are in so many ways better than digital.  I highly recommend Event Crashers for any of your specialty letterpress, embossing and custom foil stamping!
