One of Off the Beaten Press’ two letterpress machines is stored in the trailer. All the shelves and storage were custom designed (by Natalie) to fit the needs of her studio. Tools and supplies were measured beforehand to ensure the cabinetry was perfect.

The work bench was designed so that the top would lift away allowing the Showcard Model B Press to be used where it is, and then covered again for maximum surface area for other projects. It works out just as designed and leaves the press incredibly easy to access. The cabinets along the sides of the trailer do not have knobs, but grooves to help open them allowing for the most space possible in the walkway.

A smaller surface runs under the windows across from the main work bench. Wood type is stored on display ready to use, but the area also functions as a great area to dry prints when completed. A tall vertical shelf runs up the full height of the trailer. Large lips were installed so no items would shuffle around during transport.

There are modular storage containers mounted on the walls to utilize every inch of space. The bins on them are magnetic and can be shifted around the trailer when working on different projects. There is also a large bulletin board to display work.

This is a detail of the cabinets along the back wall. There are LED dimmer lights underneath so one can rest and have subtle lighting to read or sketch.
