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.
