About Commoners Press

The Commoners Press was formed in 2017 with purchases of 3 letterpresses, one paper guillotine and various printing sundries (paper stock, printing ink and tools) from Ray, owner of Excell Press in Brunswick. The presses had been purchased new and used only by Ray before he retired in 2017. After the presses were purchased we continued to learn from Ray about the presses as well as Geoff White a former pressman who had completed his apprenticeship on the machines we had purchased. We moved locations from Brunswick to Coburg North in January 2021 and are part of Coburg Studios on Charles St, Coburg North.

these three words: public printing collaboration Past Event

Presented by Commoners Press

‘these three words’ invites you to take part in a collaborative public printing project. On Monday 21 March, visit the Commoners Press studio, learn about the craft of industrial letterpress printing, its operations and aspirations, and contribute ‘three words’ using the prompt: ‘What makes your local community liveable?’. The collection of three words will be letterpress-printed to create an exhibition and book to be presented on Saturday 26 March.
