Try Your Hand at Printing on Historic Pinyon Jay Press

November 7, 2022

A student hand-prints a poster on a Pinyon Jay Press.

All are invited to come learn about ISU’s Pinyon Jay Press at an open house on Thursday, Nov. 10, 4-6 p.m., in the Liberal Arts building, room 139 on the Pocatello campus. 

A collaborative venture between three departments on campus—Art; Communication, Media, and Persuasion; and English and Philosophy—the Pinyon Jay Press provides a center for fine and experimental letterpress printing, the history of typography, and visual culture in general. Pinyon Jay Press publishes work by students, faculty, and community members, offering opportunities to learn about the many aspects of printing.

 At this event Pinyon Jay Press Advisory Board members Paula Jull, Roger Schmidt, Naomi Velasquez and Curt Whitaker will hold a tour of the letterpress studio. Visitors will be able to view faculty and student work and try their hand at printing on one of the historic presses.
