We’re an eclectic group of printers, designers, illustrators and artists who share a love of all things letterpress*.

We met up in January to plan for the year ahead. Here’s a mini update:

– A collaborative, themed letterpress printing project. Without giving too much away … we’ll be making work trios of a letterpress printer + designer + third person. Each trio will get to make a different design and it will all go together into one beautiful package. Should be ready by October if all goes well!

– Happily, we’ll be upgrading our web presence. The vision is for the Vancouver Letterpress League to be a local way for people to find a letterpress printer and resources. We have a Basecamp set up to coordinate the new site.

Join the conversation on FB and stay in touch on our blog for now. Next meetup is February 20th, 6:30pm at Rhizome Cafe. $2 suggested donation per person to cover room rental costs.

*If you also have a printshop in your garage …. you’re definitely welcome. If you work with Photoshop all day you’re welcome too.
