Streetcorner Letterpress invites people of all ages to print their own free postcards from a variety of papers, images, and colors.
COVID changes- Streetcorner Letterpress has been an interactive printing experience that offers custom designs and letterpress printing at events. Taking COVID into consideration, we have pivoted to offer custom, pre-printed cards and a pop-up, interactive display to bring letterpress prints to events. We’ll work with you to create artful designs that can be souvenirs, interactive prompts to engage your audience, or mailable postcards. These prints will be created on 100-year-old letterpresses, making each card its own unique, tactile keepsakes for event attendees.
Add-ons and variations are available to customize the experience at your event.
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 letterpresses draw 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 souvenirs from your event worth saving. Streetcorner Letterpress requires active facilitation by staff. Streetcorner Letterpress provides a fun and accessible experience that, when paired with visiting your event, will create a lasting impression (pun totally intended).
