Discover hidden printing studios, publishers, craft presses and binderies in the Central Eastside
Printdustrial is an annual celebration of Craft Publishing and Printing in the Central Eastside Industrial District (CEID) in SE Portland. This includes letterpress printers, book binders, small edition publishers, and other resources. The Independent Publishing Resource Center, the main host, would like to invite you to participate in the event this weekend in May (16-18th). Printdustrial is a prime opportunity to educate the public about craft publishing and printing, get business publicity, and strengthen the community of craft printers and publishers in the Industrial District. Some of you participated last year in November, spearheaded by Carye Bye of Red Bat Press, and we look forward to seeing you again this May. For those we haven’t seen, we look forward to your participation this year in growing this event.
