What you'll do

We are offering a three-hour long letterpress printing workshop. We will start by learning about the history and tools of letterpress before exploring our antique wood type collection and setting type and images to print. Then, we'll get our hands inky and print up a short run of stationery or postcards that our guests have designed to take with them. Happy hour snacks and drinks will be provided!

Kyle

I have been a letterpress printer since 2006 and have run Power and Light Press since 2009. Power and Light Press specializes in funny, quirky greeting cards, and we design and produce our product line at our headquarters in Silver City, NM, and sell to stores nationwide. I am also the owner-operator of the Moveable Type Truck, a mobile printshop that has hosted workshops and demos in 47 states! I love introducing people to the craft of letterpress printing, and love sharing our weird and sweet little town in this weird and sweet little corner of the world.
