Welcome to our Society

We are a group of print and book binding enthusiasts who are trying to preserve the skills of the past through providing opportunities for people to acquire the art and skills of printing and bookbinding.

Over the years, Society members have worked hard to collect and display printing and related machinery that tells the story of printing from its earliest days in Canterbury and Christchurch. We have a wonderful collection of presses and other equipment which we are happy to show and demonstrate to others.
Even better, why not join us and learn to use this equipment yourself? We have members who would be happy to help you put your imaginative ideas into print.
Or maybe you worked in the printing industry? We would be pleased to have your help passing on your skills to others or helping maintain our great collection of printing and related machinery.
