SVC Seattle Wayzgoose!

It’s like the X Games of letterpress printing.

You’re invited to our 11th annual festival of all things letterpress, the age-old printing technique of impressing words on paper. This free and family-friendly event features:

STEAMROLLER SMACKDOWN

The center stage event! Top artists and design firms hit the SVC parking lot to print oversized posters with the hefty help of a two-ton steamroller instead of a traditional printing press. We’ll auction off these giants of design (the posters, not the people) to benefit SVC’s letterpress programs.

MARKETPLACE

Letterpress printers from all over the Pacific Northwest will be on hand selling their gorgeous, handmade letterpress cards, books and ephemera.

EQUIPMENT SWAP

If you’re a letterpress printer, or thinking of becoming one, come check out the great deals on type, metal cuts, and equipment. Plenty of free advice will also be dispensed. Have things to sell? Contact us!

DEMONSTRATIONS

Want to try letterpress printing yourself? You can on SVC’s vintage iron handpress, as you crank out (literally) a handsome keepsake of your own.

FOOD & MUSIC

Enjoy delicious treats from food vendors and toe-tapping music from the Canote Brothers, keeping time to the steady beep of the steamroller.
