Tell us about your business.We are printers and publishers of handmade limited edition books, custom bookbinders, makers of engraved writing papers, invitations, and library accessories. At the press in Newburgh, NY, we have consolidated an important collection of historic letterpress, engraving, and bookbinding equipment and our skilled printers and binders perpetuate the related crafts that celebrate the written word.
What makes your business stand out?In this age of disposable and intangible communications, when we delete our correspondence, store our memories in a cloud, and literally turn books on and off with a switch, Thornwillow is committed to enhancing the relationship between the reader and the written word through beautiful design and lasting craftsmanship.
What's the best business advice you've received?I founded Thornwillow press in 1985, when I was 16 and still in school. Since day one I have been encouraged to pursue my passions and dreams with single-minded determination. The advice that has been a constant influence is to pursue the goal, everyday, of being better at your craft then you were the day before, to make things that matter and will mean something, not just today but for years to come.
