It's always exciting to open our Indiegogo page and see who has joined our effort. Relatives, friends, friends of friends, civic minded businesses and new supporters from around the world! Thanks so much! Today we want to especially thank our most recent major donors. Heading into Memorial Day weekend we're at $22,000 but still have 70% of our goal to reach in the month of June! Help us spread the word!
Thank You Publication Printers!
Publication Printers, which has a long history in Denver, supported us at the Johannes Gutenberg Circle level! In 1926, the Rosenbergs, a family of printers, came to Denver. In 1979, brothers Gary and IV Rosenberg founded Publication Printers, which prides itself on being innovative, progressive, and a trusted leader in the web printing industry.
Publication Printers started out doing coldset newspaper printing and evolved into one of the country’s leading web printers, successfully marketing and distributing magazines, catalogs, brochures, direct mail, digital editions and more – taking care of every aspect of the project from printing and binding to mailing and shipping. Gary remains as president and CEO of this 2nd generation family-owned business.
New William Morris Circle Members!
Ken and Joyce Letzler – Retired attorney Ken has been named as one of the country's leading antitrust lawyers by a number of publications, but his firm also celebrated his baseball playing skills. Joyce is renowned as a gracious and welcoming host.
Martha Cooper – Martha’s editorial career began with letterpress publications, both newspaper and magazines. She says “it's fun to see all the art being produced letterpress” and “doubly fun to see the Depot’s progress.” Martha Cooper has made her donation available as matching funds! If we can raise another $1000 over the next week we can deposit her generous $1000 donation!
Board Members Made Matching Funds Available!
Peter Bergman and Heather Link-Bergman are artists and printers who use letterpress in their work. Peter has been a board member since 2013 and President since October 2015. He teaches beginning typography students at MSU Denver how to hand set type and print on equipment and type that Tom Parson initially helped the university procure and set up. Both Peter and Heather also have perks to offer. Check them out.
The other match comes from Tom and Patti Parson. Tom is our Executive Director, a master letterpress printer and the dreamer and visionary behind the Depot. Patti is the board’s secretary, in addition to being Managing Producer for the PBS NewsHour. She says her printing talents are minimal but enthusiastic! Tom also is a poet whose work is available as a perk.
