Help Us Spread the Word!
The best thing you can do, unless you have a magical pot of type metal / 'er, gold, is share the project with people who might care about what we’re trying to create – fellow printers, designers, artists, creatives, and even history enthusiasts!
Here are some awesome pictures and media to share with people or post to Facebook: http://www.letterpressfilm.com/media-guide

We're excited to announce two additional prints now available as part of our limited edition Pressing On Printers Collection! One luscious print is "You Are Just My Type" by Greg Walters. His inspiration is, "because type is what letterpress is all about." Greg used wood type and a Hamilton border with gold bronzing powder which had to be brushed onto the wet ink one at a time.
And "A Good Word" reversible print by Celene Aubry from Hatch Show Print. She explains her fascinating, two-sided contribution, "I get the most gratification out of my work when I feel like I've connected with someone through it, or affected someone, somehow. Good words and sharing them are what I'm after, and the good wood that goes into type and also that wood that goes into paper, it's all connected."

"Ohhh, chromatics!" Dave Peat and Dave Churchman have very particular taste in the type they collect and print. Peat focuses on 19th century ornate Victorian type and Churchman dearly loves his 'house font' Palatino. DaFont.com is an online archive of freely downloadable digital fonts, let's see what they think of this new-fangled digital type "specimen book."
