PressBoardPress began at the University at Buffalo back in 2010, the brainchild of Patrick Riedy, Letson Williams, and Michael Koh. We set out to publish work we wanted to read. Our first books were poorly printed and poorly edited, but we learned. Michael Koh ran the website edition for just about three strong years while Patrick set out to make chapbooks and learn how to letterpress. Letson edited those chapbooks, and also put on regular readings with Patrick in the Buffalo area.

As Michael and Peter took different paths, PressBoardPress is now run by Patrick Riedy, serving as an occasional micro-press for chapbooks and finding its home split between Buffalo, NY and Providence, RI.
