The history of Elisabeth Rose wouldn’t be complete without the story of our 1881 Samson Letterpress. When first starting out Elisabeth discovered this treasure on Craigslist, having spent most of its life on a U.S. Navy ship based in Annapolis, Maryland. When the ship was retired, the gentleman that ran
the press requested to take it with him to his home in Annapolis, where he continued to run the press as a hobby until he passed away in 2010. In February 2011 Elisabeth purchased the press from his grandchildren and brought it home to Charlotte. Elisabeth Rose of launched on the plates of this press and it will always hold a special place in our hearts. It sits today in the store as a memento of those early years and just how far this business has come.
