About the Conference

The eighth (!) Ladies of Letterpress conference will take place October 3-6, 2019, in St. Louis, MO! We’re happy to be partnering, for the third time, with St Louis’ Print Week, hosted by Firecracker Press and Central Print Studios.

This four-day event will include tours, discussions, panels, presentations, and workshops taught by a range of experts in letterpress printing and printing-related fields, as well as collaborations with fellow attendees. From Windmills to Vandys to bookbinding and more, this will be a fun-filled, hands-on weekend for beginners and experienced printers alike. One registration fee entitles you to as many workshops as your schedule will allow! You are guaranteed to get your hands dirty and your aprons inky!
