Looking for a printing press or wood type? The LA Printers Fair will have a very large swap meet with hard-to-find Vandercooks, Windmill Presses, rare fonts of Wood Type, Supplies and so much more!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 4th, 9 am to 4 pm but now is the time to pre-purchase your PRINTERS FAIR TICKETS so you don’t have to wait in the long lines at the door.  Also, if you want to volunteer for 2 hours during the Fair, you can get a FREE admission. Click HERE for details!

    The Printing Museum’s
    25TH ANNIVERSARY
    BUILDING CAMPAIGN




    The Museum’s Building Campaign has been created to raise $1 million over the next two years to underwrite the expansion of the Printing Museum’s exhibits and programs and to develop an Operations Fund for the Museum’s future. With plans to expand the Museum facility, improve the exhibits and develop new educational tours and programs, the Printing Museum needs your support to achieve these important goals. Your contributions in YEAR ONE of the Building Campaign will be generously matched $1 for $1 by a grant from PIASC.

    The seven initiatives of the Building Campaign are to Double the Public Display in the front building, Build an Enlarged Theatre, Expand the Book Arts Institute facility in the rear building, Create a Rotating Exhibit Gallery, Develop Two New Educational Programs & Exhibits on California and World History, Create a New Current & Future Technology Exhibit, and Build an Operations Fund for the Museum’s future.
