Streetcorner Letterpress invites people of all ages to print their own free postcards from a variety of papers, images, and colors.
Streetcorner Letterpress is an interactive project designed for public or private events. These 100-year-old letterpresses produce 4×6 postcard-style prints with the push of a lever, and can be operated by people of any age or ability. The unique letterpress kiosk draws a curious crowd, who are then invited to print their own postcards with images and colors customized to your event theme. Whether prints are taken home, framed, put on the fridge, or mailed to a friend, they are art worth saving. Streetcorner Letterpress requires active facilitation by two engaging staff. This project works well at night with built-in lights and generates energy with built-in speakers, captivating 8 year olds to 80 year olds alike. Streetcorner Letterpress provides a fun and accessible experience that, when paired with visiting your event, will create a lasting impression (pun totally intended).
