Vandercook Press
Any one know of some place near centeral California that has a Vandercook Press abale to print off a 28X21 block.
I live at South Lake Tahoe

Hicks Brother Printing Equipment in SF has a large Vandercook, a 32-28 if I remember correctly, that was recently used for printing in a temporary studio. But it might not be able to ink down the middle of the form because its distributors were recessed there for two-color printing (again, if I remember correctly, not sure).

You may try calling Kurt over at Reno Type.

If you still need help with this I know someone in Reno who has lots of letterpress equipment. He may be able to help. Let me know and I can get his info for you.
