Print Futures

RETURNs FEbRUARY 6, 2022

Print Futures is a free, quarterly series spotlighting the next generation of letterpress printers.

Celebrating Emerging Printers

Print Futures supports new voices in letterpress by building bridges between emerging printers doing great work in educational institutions, community centers, and professional shops. It is co-produced by Partners in Print (PiP) and Letterpress Educators of Art & Design (LEAD).

All Are Welcome

Print Futures is geared toward emerging letterpress printers—whether college students, interns, or printers at community centers—but all ages and levels of experience are welcome. This quarterly series takes place online, via Zoom, and is free to attend.

The Winter 2022 edition of Print Futures will take place on February 6. Registration for the event will open in late Fall 2021. Subscribe to PiP’s mailing list for updates.

Fall 2021 Recap

Print Futures debuted on October 3, 2021 with a two-hour virtual event consisting of six short presentations from letterpress printers from around the world. It was followed by break-out sessions hosted by printing peers.

LEAD and PiP thank the brave printers and moderators who shared their work and made the inaugural event a success: Ann Ong (Perth, Western Australia); Jackson Haley (Rockport, Massachusetts); Mint Liu (Chicago, Illinois); Lucas Novo (São Paulo, Brazil); Liz Geoffrey (Milwaukee, Wisconsin); Maddy Underwood (Rochester, NY); Joshue Molina (Los Ángeles, California); and Kalía Daily (Indianapolis, Indiana).
