P22 Blox is a set of modular letterpress printing blocks made from space age material... plastic! It allows for a wide variety of lettering, experimental letterforms and pattern making, giving printers an entirely new medium to inspire modern presswork.
This project is a collaboration with Starshaped Press in Chicago.
The initial P22 Blox sets were delivered in early 2016. A limited second run of P22 Blox was made in June 2016. A third press was completed in Mid 2018 in yellow plastic and is available via P22.com. This new version features a lower price and includes a booklet, laser cut stencil and digital files!
The Blox are injection molded in Upstate New York using Thermo Plastic Elastomer (TPE)
