Kseniya of Thomas-Printers has always been a big supporter of WeddingInviteLove (and one of our first vendors, too), and I’ve always been a fan of the organization she founded, Ladies of Letterpress (with Jessica W., the owner of Heroes & Criminals Press.)
From their website:
Ladies of Letterpress is an international trade organization for letterpress printers and print enthusiasts. Our mission is to promote the art and craft of letterpress printing and to encourage the voice and vision of women printers. We strive to maintain the cultural legacy of fine press printing while advancing it as a living, contemporary art form as well as a viable commercial printing method. Membership is open to both men and women.
This is a community where you can read about our adventures in commercial, fine press, and zine printing, ask for advice and learn from other printers, share resources, and get inspiration for your own business and work–all for the love of letterpress.
Isn’t that just fantastic?
As of today, any member of WeddingInviteLove who is also a member of Ladies of Letterpress can edit their profile and choose to list Ladies of Letterpress as an affiliation, giving them a handy-dandy badge on their profile!
Interested in joining Ladies of Letterpress? (remember, you don’t necessarily have to be a lady!) Basic membership is free, but if you want to pay (starting at $60/yr, or $25 if you’re a student), there are plenty of benefits.
Thanks again to Ladies of Letterpress for being such a great organization!
