The first position in the print shop is the Printer's Devil. Their role sorting type and maintaining the equipment builds knowledge and understanding of all aspects of printing. If you appreciate the presses and supplies for letterpress printing, consider a contribution of $25 to pay for printmaking supplies and equipment for free programs offered throughout the year.
The Compositor, or Typesetter, composes type, line by line in preparation for printing. Your gift of $45 will build our type collection. Historic type is getting harder to find. Help us preserve complete sets of type so it can be used by students for creative self expression through letterpress printmaking.
The Printer operates the presses. Ink is applied and paper is guided through the press with beautiful results. Your contribution of $75 will provide ink and paper for printers in the studio.
The Foreman, or Forewoman guides the activities in the print shop. Keeping production on track while allocating time for education, these leaders keep everyone inspired to pursue their goals. With your $150 contribution we can pay teachers and studio managers to continue sharing their printmaking expertise with students.
