We remain open for business as of March 29. There are no reported cases of Coronavirus in our county but it has now shown up in the county to our South, La Plata County, where most of our contact is. Since we have two or three walk-in customers a year, we have almost no contact with the outside world. It is still snowing here while our friend Dave Seat outside of Nashville is showing tulips in bloom with 80 degree temperatures. Our suppliers are all still working and they are all over the country. We continue to have UPS and Post Office service so until something happens to the contrary, we will try to serve your needs. Rollers are still being made in one or two days with no slow down. We are exercising all the restrictions while still staying open.
Supply issues continue to be a problem as some products are no longer available. We were surprised to find our old reliable tympan was completely out of stock from our manufacturer in Denver. They are looking at sometime in March before a mill order of paper will be available, and then it has to sheeted and die cut from mill rolls before being ready. We do have adequate supplies of most sizes of tympan on hand. Don't count on anything being available in the future as we have in the past. Almost every one in the letterpress supply business is past retirement age with few ready to take over. As we venture into 2020, we do plan on a good, solid year.
We prefer that orders be placed through this web site rather than phone calls. Hand written notes with the wrong hand are sometimes hard to read, so help out your order--there is a place on the web site order form to write about special needs or questions.
