Smock is based in Syracuse, New York, where their print shop has 20 antique presses, 50 tons of equipment, and 17 employees. Smockpaper describe themselves as, “faithful lovers of historic craft. We have letterpress ink in our veins. We are idealists. This means we believe in things. We are trying to make the world better right now. This affects everything we do. We read Walt Whitman (he was a letterpress printer too, by the way). We fall head over heels for heavy cast iron presses. We believe in the creation of beautiful things. And we want, like you, to feel good about where our beautiful things come from”
