Stumptown Printers is relocating from our current shop space in Portland. We’ve had a good 20 years in this town. But with our lease expiring this year and commercial (and residential) property leasing rates climbing as high as they have recently, it is unrealistic for us to continue our work here in Portland.
The good news: We've located a new shop space just outside of Portland and will be relocating in the next couple of months. We're excited to get to work in a new location starting the first of the year.
The bad news (for us): Our new shop space is smaller than our current one, and we need to find new homes for some of our equipment.
Heidelberg KORD 64
I’m going to be sad to see this press go. Of the 20 years that we’ve been in business, this has been my favorite offset litho press that we’ve had on our floor, hands down. The swing gripper system, convex feed board with positive sheet transfer provides excellent registration. It can be run bearer to bearer, or variable/adjustable impression pressure. The construction of the solid iron frame provides what Heidelberg calls “no vibration” accuracy and consistency.
It’s a beauty. We’ve printed most of our LP jacket work on this machine, from single spot color to CMYK. Oversized posters, oddball packaging jobs, hairline 5 color spot jobs on 18 pt. folding board. If you work hard for this machine, it’ll work hard back.
The offset K-lines were introduced in the early 1960s, with operating controls and a format that look very similar to the Heidelberg cylinder letterpress machines. Ours is a 1968. It’s in great condition, and is a pleasure to run.
We’re asking $7,500 for the press. It comes with tools, spare blankets, all the manuals, and a dampening roller cleaning machine if you need it.
If you have any questions, let me know through the contact link above, or email Stumptown Printers.
