WNYBAC is excited to introduce the newest member of our printing family...

The Poco Proof Press No. 0 was made by Hacker Manufacturing Company in Chicago, Illinois sometime between 1912 and 1937.

The Poco press is designed for hand-inking
and producing quick and easy proofs. The bed moves, as opposed to the barrel rolling forward, as on most proof presses.

Poco No. 0 is the smallest of the Poco presses, with a 12" x 18" bed.
He weighs in at 210 lbs.

Huge thanks to Dick Ernst from Ernst Printing
for donating this amazing machine; we're happy to give it a second life!
Stop by WNYBAC and meet Poco!
