Post Script: Bob Gregory, Crane & Co. Engraving Press Operator

Bob Gregory EngraverHow can you pick out the guy who loves what he does? He’s the one who smiles when you ask him about it. And then keeps smiling throughout the entire interview.

That’s Bob Gregory, a native of North Adams, Massachusetts (where our paper magic happens) who works an engraving press like no one’s business. He’s also a Red Sox fan and could never work at a job in which he was “just sitting there.”

That’s good news for us, and whoever has the pleasure of receiving a box of stationery created by Gregory’s skilled hands.

Here, he chats with us about being a “wedding man,” naming his engraving press and his one degree of separation from a certain blue-eyed crooner.

How long have you been working at Crane & Co.?
20 years now.

Did you start in engraving department?
I did. I started as a “wedding man.”

Is there a design you wish you had gotten to engrave?
Mick Jagger’s Christmas card. But I’ve been able to do a lot of other big jobs — Jimmy Stewart, Frank Sinatra.

Do you have a name for your machine?
[Laughs] Yeah, but I can’t repeat it.
