Jobbing Platen Certificate Program

Chandler and Price may have ceased production of presses in 1964, but these stalwart machines will carry on the work to be done for decades to come. In light of that, we are offering our Core Certificate Program on these “Jobbing Platen” presses for those who want to treadle while they print. The jobbing platen is a workhorse for edition printing; once the printer understands how it responds, it faithfully and efficiently moves through the work. Students who finish the four core classes are qualified to rent press time as well as move on to more advanced classes and techniques.  Click here to learn more about the Core Certification Program and find out how you can get a discount on all your classes.
