Did any of you ladies in letterpress get your introduction to printing or graphic arts through a Girl Scout program?
I'm writing an article about the role Boy Scout merit badges for Printing (obsolete since 1981), Printing/Communication (obsolete since 1989), and Graphic Arts (the current version) may have played in introducing boys to these skills. I could find nothing similar for girls in…Continue
Dear LoLP friends,
After much deliberation and many sleepless nights, I’ve decided to step down as co-director of Ladies of Letterpress. In the past year, major changes in my personal life (a baby, to be specific!) as well as changes in my work have put me in a place where my lack of time and energy prevent me from being the best leader I can be for this community. I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished so far, and incredibly pleased to see what a lovely community this has become.…Continue

It's in fantastic shape (I've used it regularly for the past four years), and has new Ramco rubber rollers (as of last year). Here's the deal ... I learn't to print on this press, and I'm not looking to profit from it. I just want to know it will be used and appreciated.
If you're willing to pick it up in Southwest Michigan, and can pay $200 (so I can find/build a…Continue
