What’s a Shop Talk?

The challenge of preserving a craft that predates the Google search by centuries requires some printer-to-printer networking! Shop Talks are for talking shop: comparing notes on equipment and techniques, finding sources for supplies, or sharing opportunities and talents. We gather around the virtual composing stone for these uncensored, unrecorded, free roundtables hosted by genial moderators on a monthly basis. There are no stupid questions, and mansplainers will be digitally escorted to a solo breakout room.  

This month’s letterpress topic

Join moderator Kseniya Thomas of Thomas Printers for an interactive discussion about the ups and downs of commercial printing. Bring your tips and knowledge and prepare for an engaging and revealing conversation!

Are Shop Talks recorded?

All of PiP’s Shop Talk events are live, uncensored, and unrecorded — we find it’s a lot more fun and interactive this way. They are closed captioned using Zoom’s Live Transcription feature; to make the most of this tool, update to the most recent version of Zoom.
