StL Print Week
This year we’re thrilled to be collaborating with Ladies of Letterpress (est. 2007) for their Regional Conference! We’re planning tons of workshops (taught by the world’s best), we’ll have guest speakers, a private suffragette/print-history tour of Bellefontaine Cemetery, and a Print Market to buy/sell printed goods. There’s much more in the works, so check the StL Print Week website for more details!
StL Print Week started in 2016 as a collaboration between Eric Woods, owner of The Firecracker Press, and Marie Oberkirsch, director at Central Print. The purpose of Print Week is to celebrate St. Louis printing history, showcase local printers, and bring a growing wave of printers to St. Louis to talk about their work.
In 2016 we collaborated with the Amalgamated Printers’ Association (est. 1958) and organized their annual Wayzgoose (printers party), offering workshops, panel discussions, trivia, a letterpress movie night, a Print Market, and more. Novice printers and master printers came together to tell tall tales, share tricks, and talk about the future of letterpress printing.
