Ink Archeologist

We’re diligently sifting, sorting, and cleaning this massive number of old printer’s blocks, and it’s proved to be quite a challenge. Removing 40+ years of ink residue is not easy, especially since the blocks vary from being 100% wood, 100% metal, or metal faced on wood block. Using an arsenal of brushes, steel wool, power tools, and different types of environmentally (and skin) friendly solvents, we’ve been able to make some great progress.

Along the way, we’ve uncovered some interesting relics of the past – mostly vintage logos and advertisements for classic American (and now worldwide) brands, and some other icons of yesteryear. Below is a small gallery of our finds so far. For the most current finds, visit and like our facebook page here
