The Printer’s Son, Joe Mathew’s profile of Hamilton Chan, who, after years spent pursuing other careers, found joy at his father’s business, was one of our feel-good stories of 2009, so when an editor noticed a for lease sign on Charlie Chan Printing’s Wilshire shop last week, we held our breath—and made a call.
Here’s what we found out:
Charlie Chan Printing sold the building early last month, and the for lease sign was apparently posted by the building’s new owners. The Sunset location of Charlie Chan Printing is still open and taking orders.
We’re calling all our garage-sale- and birthday party-flier-happy friends next.
