Carl is fabulous teacher. He is extremely thoughtful in both his praise and criticism and is truly passionate about his work. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in wood engraving.

Hello! I would like to contact Carl Montford in regards to the knowledge of any movers on the east side of Seattle. Where can I find his information?


What are you moving? If it is a printing press of any great size, I would try the guys in Ballard, Ballard Trucking I think. If you want super proffesional movers, try Nelson Movers, if you just have a small press or a type cabinet, call me at 206-794-1073.

Hello Carl,

Sorry for the late response. I have a C&P 8x12 and a Challenge paper cutter, 19” that would need to be moved from a POD up my driveway into the garage.

Thank you for the information, I will get in touch with the sources you have passed along to me.
