Cellar Press

A Letterpress + Printmaking Studio
at The Grand Center for Arts & Culture

The Cellar Press is a complete letterpress and printmaking studio located in the basement of The Grand Center for Arts & Culture. Thanks to several generous donations, the studio is equipped with:

  • 1938 Press, donated by Tom Hagen

  • Tabletop Press

  • Several cases of Type

and much more.

The Cellar Press would not have been possible without the monetary, equipment, and service donations, as well as the volunteers who spent countless hours making the studio a reality. Andy and Zach Kahmann of A-Z Letterpress in Montevideo, MN have played an integral role and dedicated many of their weekends setting up the equipment, offering advice and guidance, and educating our staff on all things printmaking.
