Who is Farmwood Press?: Meet our Presses: Helga - Heidelberg Windmill
The name “Helga” is derived from an Old Norse word meaning “holy” or, according to some sources, “blessed” and “faithful.” A Heidelberg press with a strong business legacy deserves a name that means “faithful.” Every spin and movement is a lasting one — one that we can truly rely on.
Helga is a 10x15 Heidelberg “Windmill” Platen press. Windmill is a unique motion that makes impression after beautiful impression. She glides gracefully and gently, producing not only a balanced printed piece but also unique die-cut patterns and shapes for almost anything she is given. We were delighted to adopt Helga into the Farmwood family.
