OUR INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN IS LIVE! Friends, we have launched a major Indiegogo fundraising campaign! It is time for The Letterpress Depot to ask for your help. For the past 4 years we’ve been working towards creating one of the largest hands-on letterpress museums and community print studios in the country – with 15 presses and over 2,000 drawers of type – in a historic train depot just south of downtown Denver! We need to do renovations to make it open for YOU to print in and we are asking for your donations!
Here is some information on what your generous donation will help us achieve together!
Your donation will help with:
• Construction of the exterior wall to the basement pressroom!
• Building an ada accessible access ramp!
• Installing an ada accessible restroom!
• Completing electrical, plumbing and HVAC!
Every dollar we make during this campaign will be invested in our – and maybe your – new home!
ABOUT THE LETTERPRESS DEPOT:
The Letterpress Depot: a living museum of letterpress printing, typography, design, poetry and art – a working vintage letterpress printshop, with space for exhibits, demonstrations, workshops, events and meetings, as well as typographic research and printing projects – to be a resource available to the community.
Check out our Marketplace for posters sold in support of the Depot and to "buy" workshops. Even though the building is not ready, workshops are up and running around town. Let us know what you or your group wants to learn and we can accommodate. Past workshops can be found under News & Notes while upcoming ones will be also posted in Workshops. The Depot is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.
The depot itself has long attracted attention throughout the area, both for its architectural design and for its historic importance. “The Letterpress Depot” – a name that is inclusive for the community as well as an expansive metaphor for the artistic and historic destinations and journeys we expect our living museum to offer: all aboard!
