The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On explores the question: why has letterpress survived? Captivating personalities blend with wood, metal and type as young printers strive to save this historic process in a film created for the designer, type nerd, historian and collector in us all.

"Pressing On is an essential document not just about a revolutionary means of human interaction, but to savor the passion of its practitioners." 

- Steven Heller, former art director at the New York Times.
