On January 17th, Philagrafika headed over to West Philly to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Common Press, the letterpress printing studio located at University of Pennsylvania (and one of our favorite places). It was founded on January 17th, 2006, the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin's birth!
The night was laid back and festive! Friends and fans gathered and watched as Matt Neff, master printer and print shop manager, assisted eager guests in printing a free commemorative keepsake letterpress postcard for folks to take home.
