Lead Graffiti

Newark, DE

hours   visiting

Staffed by Ray Nichols and Jill Cypher, Lead Graffiti straddles the worlds of a working museum and a letterpress testing laboratory. We each have a professional graphic designer's background of over 35 years. THEN we started doing letterpress. Consequently, we're always trying to push the envelope to see what interesting thing letterpress can do next, looking for things that aren't like what others are doing, be it creative or technical. 

Our studio is 2,200 square feet and is equipped with 2 iron handpresses, 2 Vandercook presses, floor model and table top platens, an Intertype line caster, and all of the supporting materials that support letterpress printing and bookmaking. Our workshops teach you almost anything about letterpress and bookmaking you need to know to get started.

Hours

Times vary, but typically our studio is open 5 to 7 days a week. e don't promote drop-in traffic, but we live only 10 minutes from the studio and can generally be available most anytime with proper notice, though generally, we might not have the heat on during the colder winter months.


Driving Directions & Parking

We are located in the Sandy Brae Industrial Park which is inside the city limits of Newark, Delaware, just off Otts Chapel Road which is just off Elkton Road. Most of our scheduled events are either late afternoon or weekends when parking is pretty open. Our largest neighbor who shares our parking lot closes by 3:30 weekdays.


Other Visitor Information

We often do tours for groups that have ranged from University of Delaware classes, middle schools, creative groups like UrbanSketchersDelaware. We offer a wide range of letterpress and bookmaking workshops which usually occur on weekends. We have a letterpress workshop which we've done with kids as young as 5, though we normally give 8 as the younger limit.
