THIS IS WHAT WE CALL Xx!#*! STOCK.
Cranky Pressman has other thoughts on stock too. To keep our letterpress prices keen, we offer a range of standard ‘house’ stocks for our customers to hem and haw over. They are in-shop and ready to work with should they suit your project. However, if your design calls for a non-stock stock, we can source those as well. Because one thing our house stock should never do is stifle creativity.
Order this paper swatch book to use when specifying one of our house stocks for your letterpress job. It's a handy little tool to keep near your drawing board. We will also throw in a few letterpress printed samples we've done for our customers. Online Swatch Book orders only accepted to U.S. addresses.

Check out our 3 ranges of house stocks:
Our basic range of house stock was chosen with the designer and environment in mind. Cranky’s Choices include three 100% recycled papers, a bright white sheet, plus black and chipboard to display your creativity in ways offset and digital printing just can’t match.
Lettra was designed specifically for letterpress by Crane & Company. Made with 100% recovered cotton fiber and no surface sizing, Lettra brings the look of handmade paper to a machine-made commercial sheet which is ideal for a bite impression. No wonder this is one of our most popular house stocks.More detail on the Lettra Line »
Thick and heavy, here’s a stock that can be hit hard with no impression showing through to the back. Not pretty nor fancy but damn spiffy none the less. Back in the day you would find this used as backing board on layout pads but today even they’ve gone all limp. Stocky Weights are not intended for lightweight designs.
