HANDMADE BEAUTIES

In places like Twin Cities, where the winters are often filled with negative temperatures, it’s the perfect time to cozy up in the studio and create. That’s Laura Brown’s mentality. She’s been a part of the Artist Co-op at Minnesota Center for Book Arts since 2011. It’s a wonderland of printmaking and bookbinding. What drew Laura in was the community aspect of the craft. The machinery and equipment is large, expensive, and meant to be shared. In the photos above you can watch Laura’s process as she prints a calendar for the new year. How cool is that? Can you see how she sets the template and runs an inked up roller across it? You can purchase one of these handmade beauties here. There is so much personality in printmaking. It opens up a world of surprises and problem solving. The beautiful letters, rich inks, and the hand-touched nature of each impression (that’s what you call an individual print). Check out more of what Laura’s up to atlaurabrownart.com

A little message from our friends at Shillington »

Ho ho ho, and welcome to Shillington’s 10 Days of Christmas! Each day we’ll be sharing a gift idea for the designer in your life - and to kick it all off, we’re giving away FOUR of these cool t-shirts from charity print initiative Print for Good. The tee was designed by the wonderful Jeffrey Bowman, who used to teach at Shillington Manchester. 

All you have to do to be in the running is to leave us a comment telling us what you’re hoping you’ll get for Christmas this year. The four winners will be picked at random and announced at the end of the 10 days, on Wednesday 18th December at 8PM AEST. 

Good luck, and Merry Christmas!”

Get yourselves over to their FB page to get involved!

'Cabin Times' eco t-shirt is available now from our store.

A final push for 2013

As 2013 draws to a close, we want to say a huge thank you to all our supporters this year; to everyone who bought a print, shared our releases with others and championed our mission. And to all our contributors, printers and team behind the scenes that make Print for Good what it is, THANK YOU. 

Print for Good is moving in directions we never thought it would - in the best way possible. It has connected us with like minded people who are trying to do GOOD, often with limited resources, in both time and money. But what we’ve seen are people passionate about helping others and using creative means to spread the message. This alone makes us want to continue to grow, not necessarily bigger, but ‘better’ in 2014. There are already plenty of new and exciting things planned for 2014, including new contributors that are on board. We can’t wait to share it all with you.

And so, before the year is out, we’d like to ask for your help once again and give one final push. We have x10 exclusive limited edition prints to shout about, with no.11 to follow on Tuesday (10 December), illustrated and designed by Luke Drozd. We give 100% profits to our chosen causes. Every release supports ShelterBox and Hot Bed Press, plus a third chosen charity by our contributors.

Please take a look, you may find the perfect gift for someone (or yourself!). 

THANK YOU once again!
