We made it!
Thanks for helping us reach and exceed our goal! We raised $4,537 to be used to get our letterpress and offset facilities up and running. Last weekend, we visited a letterpress sale in Zion, IL, and found a handful of fun fonts. And tomorrow we will be speaking with a few artists that would like to help spruce up our offset press, so things are really moving forward!
In the next day or two, I will send out surveys to help us cull the information we need to get you your rewards.
Again, thank you. Spudnik Press depends on a supportive community to allow us to achieve our mission of approachable and affordable access to printmaking. I have been so pleased with the support we have received!
