Staffed by Ray Nichols and Jill Cypher, Lead Graffiti straddles the worlds of a working museum and a letterpress testing laboratory. They each have a professional graphic designer's background of over 35 years. Then they started doing letterpress. Consequently, they'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. Their 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.
