LA Printer’s Fair 2010 – On the horizon

We are excited to announce that Quality Letterpress will be exhibiting at this year’s LA Printer’s Fair! The event is held at the International Printing Museum in Carson, California (South L.A.), and if it’s anything like last year it will be a great time. Last year the temperatures were triple digits but was a month earlier in the Summer. Despite the heat, there were lots of great people sharing in the letterpress tradition as well as a beautiful collection of presses and equipment for sale, loads of amazing press work and paper samples on display as well as tours of the museum. We have a ton of work to do before the event but we’re looking forward to showing some Quality paper goods and getting out there to shake some hands and kiss some babies. See you in the parking lot!

Here’s a few shots from last year’s fair and the scanned handbill.
