რას გააკეთებთ

First, Mark E. Sackett the owner and his team, will welcome you to the Pressroom and Mercantile here at The Box SF, where you will step back in time absorbing our recreation of an 1850's General Store and working Letterpress Printing Shop, where our oldest Press dates back to 1838! You'll get to see amazing Design and Advertising History, learn a bit about our historic Printing Presses. Then we'll head to our basement for a quick peek of our hidden private Speakeasy, "The Sipping Room"!

You'll have an opportunity to browse millions of pieces of rare ephemera, billheads, posters, games, stamps, labels, books, advertising displays, packaging, toys and more, that show beautiful examples of Graphic Design, Lettering, Typography, Calligraphy and Printed history! And it's all for sale!

Even people with little or no interest in these types of things have become fascinated by the space, the presses, the history and the amazing imagery that surrounds them here, and why our tagline is: "All Things Printed".

We promise you a immersive visual experience!

Other things to note:
We do not allow food or drink in the Mercantile, due to the rarity of the fixtures and material. We have a freight elevator accessible to all floors so while wheelchairs are welcome, we are not however an ADA Space! Handwashing upon arrival, and Masks covering both your Nose and Mouth are required at all times!

I purchased this Historic Building 18 years ago. It's the former William Randolph Hearst Printing Plant where the SF Examiner was printed in the late 1920's. As a Graphic Designer/Producer, I have been collecting Millions of Advertising Items for over 50 years. Our top floors include a Flea Market/Props and Vintage Sales Space, our Design and Vintage Bookstore as well as our Private Events and Meeting Spaces for rent! We sell the material in our Historic Mercantile to collectors around the world who love it's rarity and beauty. Most of our Customers and Guests alike have said the Mercantile looks and feels like a Museum, but with nearly everything for sale, people can buy awesome gifts from $2 to as much as $20,000 There is nothing quite like The Pressroom and Mercantile here at The Box SF!

Mark is really enthusiastic about the design and the print. He shows me lots of his collections, which range from the family photos glued on the card , the ancient trademark graphics of matches, tobacco, ancient bill dollars, and initial printing machines. It's so exciting and amazing!

Attention graphic designers, ephemera fans, collage artists and anyone who is interested in the history of letterpress printing. The Box SF is a wonderful place to see thousands of letters, labels, stamps, packaging and just about any other ephemera you can think of. Everything is for sale so you can come with deep pockets or a lot of self control but either way, you will be completely amazed by this collection. Highly recommend!

Went with my coworkers at lunch time and it was a fun group outing. Mark has a vast collection of ephemera and if you like graphic design/advertising/vintage items, you will certainly find something of interest. The speakeasy was a nice addition. It is open to the public as well so I will be back to shop!

Mark was very accommodating for our large group. He created a custom experience specifically for our team’s offsite. Thank you for the excellent experience, Mark!

Super interesting place with an amazing collection of items all woven together by a central theme of interesting design. It's really cool. From a completely unremarkable exterior you enter into a wonderful immersion in things you didn't even know existed. None of us are particularly design-oriented people and it was pretty cool. Mark himself is super nice and just right off the top of his head is able to give you the details and history of any item in there (and there are a lot!). Really fun and really complete tour. We're all recommending it to our co-workers.
