Learn to use working 19th century printing presses from the Seaport Museum’s collection, and take home a small batch of holiday stationery. After all that hard work, enjoy hot cider and you can get a head start on holiday shopping at Bowne & Co., Stationers next door.

Bowne & Co.
Established in 1775, Bowne & Co. is New York’s oldest operating business under the same name. Using seven historic presses from the Museum’s working collection, our resident printers continue the age-old tradition of job (or small batch) printing, creating individual designs using custom plates or historic fonts.
