The Original

In 1997, David Wolfe opened Wolfe Editions in the Bakery Studio Building in Portland. Maine. Since then the shop has had scores of workshops, printed over twenty published works, and produced innumerable fine print editions. The shop has always had an open door policy to encourage discussion, education, and collaboration.

David is a master printer specializing in relief and intaglio printing. This consists of traditional and contemporary letterpress, etching, photopolymer plates, woodcut, linoleum, and wood engraving.

The studio shop consists of 2000 square feet with seven letterpresses and five type casting machines. With over thirty cases of antique wood type and 100 cases of hand type we can accommodate most needs. The shop is not a museum although most of the equipment is old, we use all the machines at various points in production.
