The Civil War Museum Kenosha WI

On Dec 1st  CCR setup it's Press on Wheels  at Civil War Museum  in Kenosha WI,  We printed  pretty much non stop from 11AM until 4:30 PM.  We printed  over 100 Seasons greetings cards.

Before the event at the Civil War Musum.

We used an image from an 1860's illustration by Thomas Nast. 

Anyone who  was interested in operating the press received a freshly printed card.  

What is really gratifying though is to watch the reaction of someone witnessing an impression being pulled from an inked block for the very first time.

2016  Civil Seasons Greetings Card 

 Or vision is to expand the capability to provide print and paper making activities to young people, seniors, veterans etc, regardless of ability to pay. We have always believed that it is more important to create opportunities for people to experience new things. Ability to pay should never be a roadblock to participation. 

CCR welcomes your inquiries and invitations. Check out our  fundraising campaign-
