What kind of letterpress do you use?
We used to do all of our printing on a Vandercook SP-20, which was kindly shared with us by its owner, Mike Dacey of Repeat Press. We are currently looking for a smaller (and lighter!) press to use for the occasional print run.
Will Rope-a-Dope publish my chapbook/book/poem?
Sorry, but we aren't taking submissions anymore. Follow the links on our blogroll; there are loads of fantastic small presses out there. Good luck!
I ordered a chapbook and I haven't received it. What should I do?
Yikes. We're sorry about that. Since we've stopped running the press full-time, we've tended to get a little, er, a lot, behind. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to remind us about your order.
