Now a Staff Pick! 24% to Goal + Fun with the Daves

The first week has flown by - we're now a Kickstarter Staff Pick! With 178 backers and nearly $16,000 we are very pleased with how things are looking. We've started to receive some praise from the graphic design and letterpress community:

  • Janine Vangool featured Pressing On in her UPPERCASE magazine newsletter. 
  • Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge Tweeted support for the project!
  • Maven of metal type Starshaped Press wrote an amazing blog post about the project and her generous contributions (prints AND a workshop!). Read that article here.

Help Us Spread The Word
Although things are moving along nicely, we need to receive $2,300 per day to reach our goal by the end of the campaign. Donations are one way to support the project but the best thing you can do is share the project with those who might care about it. Posting this link to social media goes a long way in helping us reach our daily goal: http://tinyurl.com/letterpressfilmKickstarter

Sharing the project via larger networks such as blogs and newsletters is super helpful! If you are connected in the graphic design, letterpress, or any other relevant communities and would like to support the project thought your network, please let us know. We can provide you with media assets to help strengthen these efforts. Contact us at info@letterpressfilm.com

New Video! Dickin' Around with the Daves: Composing Stick

Experienced printers and collectors or just discovering letterpress – everyone can see something new!

Let's keep this going so we can all see The Daves (and more) on the BIG screen!
