FAG proof press webpage / www.proofpress.ch

Dear briarpress community,

I am happy to announce that the new FAG proof press platform www.proofpress.ch is online! I’ve been working closely with the archive at FAG Lausanne, Switzerland for more than one year (still in progress…)

The webpage is meant to share information about all FAG letterpress cylinder proof presses built from the mid 1940ies until the early 1990ies. It should be a helpful tool for all FAG users to exchange experiences and discuss about their presses and issues. The webpage contains information about the history of FAG Lausanne, a printing press catalog with all built models, a list of users still working with FAG proof presses, a discussion board and a download center with manuals and electrical schemes.

All FAG proof press users are kindly asked to register their studio and presses! I’ve also written a short manual on “How to register you press?” (Please write me an email if you’re interested in that manual). If you know any FAG users please send them my link or send me their email adress! I’d be happy to help anyone registering their pressmodels!

Thank you very much!

Best wishes

Thanks for posting this. Three previous students of mine have picked up reconditioned FAGs from the company. Very nice presses. I will inform them of the site. With the prices of Vandercooks soaring into the ozone, these FAGs are now the best deal going.


Hello Dafi

I have purchased a reconditioned FAG and would be really interested in your manual.
