Welcome to Print Camp! This is a weekend long intensive covering the beautiful print and binding methods we have here at the IPRC. You will come away from the weekend with a finished book that exemplifies the skills covered.

Day One: Letterpress (11am-5pm)

Day Two: Posterpress and Bindfast Bookbinding (11am-6:00pm)

Class Descriptions:

Intro to Letterpress
Learn to set movable lead type and print on a table-top hand press in the IPRC print shop. You’ll learn the vocabulary of printing and typesetting while getting a feel for this beautiful and historical process. Leave the class with a printed card and the satisfaction that comes with using 100-year-old equipment! Successful completion of this one-day class allows IPRC members access to open studio print hours so you can keep on printing!

Posterpress
Expand your letterpress printing knowledge: the poster press allows you to print on larger format sheets of paper using uniquely designed components. Make broadsides and event posters and learn the fundamentals of this special, fast lock-up flat-bed press. We will get acquainted with IPRC’s printshop and make a group project to commemorate the day. After completion of this class, you will be able to use the poster press during open printshop hours

Bindfast Perfect Binding
Using the Bind-Fast 5, you can bind as many as 30 actual softcover books or zines per hour. Completion of this workshop authorizes IPRC members to use the Bind-Fast during supervised binding hours, so you can take your publishing projects to the next level.

Cost: $100 members / $150 nonmembers
