Discover hidden printing studios, publishers, craft presses and binderies in the Central Eastside

The month of May we celebrate print at the IPRC! From letterpress and screen printing to bookbinding and an animated film about type–the IPRC has a month’s worth of great print related programming in store! Learn from regional artists, tour print studios and get behind the scenes tutorials in special workshops. 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. 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.
