Let’s Make the 2023 Letterpress Calendar!
Call for Printers, New & Experienced
Pyramid Atlantic is looking for artists currently working in letterpress or with an interest in letterpress printing to help create a beautiful editioned hand-printed calendar. Pyramid’s letterpress calendar is an annual letterpress showcase and fundraiser designed and printed by volunteer artists. Each printer designs and prints a month, either individually or in collaboration with another printer. In exchange for participation, artists will receive 2 calendars and volunteer hours/credit.
We are looking for 13-15 artists for the 2023 calendar. Collabs and teams of 2 are welcome to apply! Ideally, artists will already be certified in Pyramid’s Letterpress Studio; however, we are willing to train up to 3 artists who are interested in letterpress but need some additional support to execute their page.
- The calendar page size is 4.25 inches wide and 11 inches tall
- Designs are limited to 2 colors
- Artists will print 250 copies
- Paper, ink, and press time are supplied by Pyramid
- Printers can use type from the typeshop or polymer plates (printers who use polymer plates are responsible for purchasing them)
- Printing should be done in the letterpress studio at Pyramid
- Prints will be due in October
