About the Studio
Off the Beaten Press operates out of a renovated Vintage Camper Trailer. The trailer was purchased in 2014 and slowly, but surely, took on the new form it holds now. You can find before and process pictures over in the blog. The simple exterior, with both the logo & my signature on display, leads you into a small and organized space.
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.
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.
