noun: 1. word, reason or image
John Sullivan opened the doors to Logos Graphics in 1974 with a 10×15 offset press and a process camera to shoot color separations. It took a whole day to shoot, develop, strip and process a single job! The years have brought many a change in the way artwork is processed – some for the better, others we’re not so sure about, and the shop has changed and morphed to fit the needs of the times.
The year 1999 and the dot-com crash brought a sharp decline in offset printing and John branched out to include letterpress in the Logos repertoire. Since then, the shop has come to embrace a wide variety of equipment crossing many print mediums.
Logos is home to a 10×15 Heidelberg Windmill, a Vandercook Universal III, a Sturges Etching Press, handmade papermaking equipment, various screen printing setups, the most adorable vintage thermography machine you’ve ever seen, a Polar hydraulic cutter and a full film processing and platemaking setup for fulfilling photopolymer plate orders for the larger letterpress community.
