What’s a Shop Talk?

As printers, we always mind our Ps and Qs, but we might also need a little Q and A from time to time. 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. Gather around the virtual composing stone for uncensored, unrecorded, free roundtables hosted by genial moderators. There are no stupid questions, and mansplainers will be digitally escorted to a solo breakout room. 

This week’s topic

This extra-special Shop Talk will be hosted by the lovely people who bring you the Ladies of Letterpress Conference and the Southwest Print Fiesta, and they’re definitely not hacks! Join them for a show & tell about shop organization hacks, and get a sneak peek at what’s in store at their virtual letterpress conferences.

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.
