Print Futures is a free series that supports new voices in letterpress by building bridges between emerging letterpress printers doing great work in educational institutions, community centers, and professional shops. It takes place three times a year and is co-produced by Partners in Print (PiP) and Letterpress Educators of Art & Design (LEAD).
Mariia (Masha) is an Ukrainian designer and printmaker currently based in Prague. Her letterpress studio was formed only about a year ago, where she creates vibrant, large-scale prints with a purpose. Her print fundraiser series Poster Resistance was produced in collaboration with her parents, who fled Kharkiv after almost a month of shelling.
Paul is a mixed Malaysian-Chinese/White writer and an aspiring printer. He recently graduated from Colorado College where he majored in Creative Writing and worked at The Press at Colorado College. His work focuses on liminalities in ideology, culture, and identity.
A Graphic Design graduate, Gregory spent his formative years apprenticing in Alan Kitching’s Typography Workshop before moving to Berlin and setting up shop from within p98a. Under the pseudonym Praxis Typography, he uses his expertise in hand-set composition to produce prints driven by social and environmental justice.
This event is geared toward emerging letterpress printers — whether college students, interns, students at community centers, or independent letterpress enthusiasts. All levels of experience are welcome.

All of PiP’s online programming is live and unrecorded — we find it’s a lot more fun and conducive to forming personal connections. Events are closed captioned using Zoom’s Live Transcription feature.
