You’re only guaranteed freedom of the press if you own one.” –A.J. Liebling
Got a message for the world?
It’s a scary new America, folks. We’re worried. We’re depressed. We’re grim and grasping at straws to find a way forward. This is one way: from here on out, we’re dedicating time on a regular basis to bringing community voices to paper one by one.
You’re invited to come spend a few hours printing your own personal propaganda. What needs to be said? What needs to be heard? What do you dearly want to remember and remind people of in the days ahead?
Come feel the weight of your words letter by letter. Form your message in solid metal, lock it down, ink it up, and press those words firmly into a page. Then post them, pin them, paste them. Gift them hand to hand, face to face, mailbox to mailbox. Open up.

Dates: Flexible. We schedule workshops one at a time. Please suggest a few dates in the form below and we’ll find a time that works.
Bring: a few words to print (two sentences or less), comfortable close-toed shoes, clothes that can get inky. Not a word person? Don’t worry. We’ll help you craft your message.
You’ll learn: type anatomy and design principals, fundamentals of relief printing, typesetting, and basic platen press operation.
You’ll take home: 100+ cards of whatever message you want to put out into the world.
Live too far to come print in person? We’ll still make your propaganda happen. Send your message, we’ll collaborate on layout, and ship your prints to your doorstep.
