2020 Virtual Los Angeles Printers Fair

The Los Angeles Printers Fair at The International Printing Museum in Carson, California is the largest celebration of letterpress, printing, and the book arts on the West Coast. This year marks the 12th year of this celebration and it’s most unique one yet! The Los Angeles Printers Fair annually brings together thousands of visitors and over 100 vendors and practitioners of letterpress and the book arts. It is a unique gathering of graphic artist, hobbyist, print history enthusiast and appreciators of great art. To prioritize the safety of our visitors, vendors, staff, and volunteers this years Los Angeles Printers Fair is going virtual! The 2020 Virtual Los Angeles Printers Fair, while not in person, will be able to offer that same community feel and great opportunities to stock up on prints, cards, letterpress supplies, and printing presses.

Instead of taking place over two days the 2020 Virtual Los Angeles Printers Fair will occur during the whole month of November! By visiting our brand new website visitors will have the chance to shop our online vendor marketplace and browse featured products by all our vendors for FREE. Visitors will also be rewarded with daily special treats such as videos, tours, hands-on at home tutorials, printable keepsakes, vendor spotlights, special sales, weekly raffles, shopping guides, and more! For those wishing to join us in person we will be hosting an Outdoor Movie at The Museum introduced with a presentation by Curator Mark Barbour on printing presses on film November 14 and an On-Site Letterpress Surplus Sale on November 15th. To discover all the gems we have in store visit the Fair website and sign up for daily or weekly emails notifying you of the new releases. Normally the LA Printers Fair can only be experienced by those in the area or those fortunate enough to afford the travel, but this year we get to celebrate with a worldwide audience and bring the magic of the Printers Fair to all.
