The Excelsior Press Blog. A somewhat frequent update of events at - and new links for the web site of Hump Day Fun Discreet and Real the old Excelsior Press Museum Print shop in Frenchtown, NJ. Wed, Jan 31 - Well, I learn something new every day Hump Day Fun Discreet and Real is a place for soft packing when printing with metal type - like, for example, when printing with a 36 point calendar Black disabled women fucking with lines around the numbers and all.
It makes for a large form - approx. The image to the right does not do the print justice, but take my word for it - or click the link to see a larger image - the print came out well.

I had to print this form anyway - to test the level of the platen.
I was quite surprised when I got this pretty near perfect print right off the bat. The soft packing did a fine job Fuj bringing out the image, but did not cause the metal type form to punch through the paper.
And, it did not require much pressure at all to get a good, solid print.
