As a daily source of inspiration to thousands of people, People of Print uncovers and shares the work of the world’s most talented creatives who use the process of print. PRINT ISN’T DEAD showcases and champions 'print' by compiling exclusive studio visits, interviews and features into a beautifully printed, collectable publication.
With your support in creating PRINT ISN’T DEAD, we are in turn supporting the world of print for the expansive community who appreciate the merit of its craft. It also brings the online content of People of Print back to our original passion for print in its tactile form.
We aim to Kickstart a community-based revolution within the world of print for the greater good of print…

"...holy grail of independent editorial design Print Isn’t Dead"

:: BUY A BLOCK OF PRINT SPACE ::
As an experiment which touches on freedom of speech, uncensored content and advertising, we are opening up a section of our magazine to be controlled by our pledgers. You are invited to purchase an area of print space within our magazine, which will be sold in 1x1cm blocks. You can feature anything; a company logo, a small piece of text, an emblem or image of your choice - all pledgers will be listed on a page of our website with a URL of their choice.
Each pledger can buy anywhere between 1-100 blocks of print space which will be printed in our magazine to make one solid space, up to a maximum of 10x10cm.
:: WHERE DO THE FUNDS GO? ::Quality Paper - Fedrigoni
