Meet Mia, our 1893 Chandler and Price platen press

Chandler and Price platen press Meet Mia, our Chandler and Price platen press. Everything we print at Dinglewood Design & Press is created by her 1200 lbs of power. Mia was built in Cleveland, Ohio back in 1893. She is sometimes a cantankerous old press, but being 121 years old, we don’t really blame her if she gets tired every now and then. She was built and designed in the Old Style press era. This was a more ornate, decorative model that Chandler and Price built until 1914. The most visible difference is her sexy curves on the cast iron flywheel. Chandler and Price platen press Her full name is Miriam Wallace, which was decided by a facebook contest we held for naming her back in 2013.

Here’s what sold us on the name: In Quintin Terantino’s 1993 film Pulp Fiction, Mia Wallace is a saucy little tart and Marcellus Wallace’s wife. She messes up every now and again, but always comes back to life and is ready for a joke. It just seemed fitting for a Chandler and Price platen press.  Chandler and Price platen press For those that like the classic names, Mia can be short for Miriam – sister of Moses. The Hebrew meaning: bitter, strong.

Mia is currently an only child, but shes pressing us (pun intended) for a baby sister.
