Welcome to our first SNAPline edition of 2018! We are so ecstatic to be launching this special Letterpress edition at a public screening of Pressing On: The Letterpress Film in collaboration with The Graphic Designers of Canada (Alberta North) and the Art Gallery of Alberta. For decades now, as commercial industry casts off its heavy burdens of type cases and mechanical presses in favour of digital printing, young creatives are at the ready, cruising online sales forums and going to great lengths to rescue the heavy burdens now filling their garages and fulfilling their printmaking dreams. Often working seamlessly between pixels on screen to ink on paper, letterpress enthusiasts will often tell you that the medium keeps us firmly connected to the history, evolution and sophistication of the printed word.
SNAPline Members partake in a unique limited edition mail art program. For supporting the production of the SNAPline publication and print commission program, you'll receive SNAPline plus a new limited edition print in your mailbox three times a year.
