Each year since 2012 the printing faction of the Chesapeake Chapter has produced a calendar using a variety of printing techniques, mostly centered around letterpress, often using the opportunity to experiment with new techniques & new layouts. The calendars are sold with the funds supporting 10 student memberships for Denker Fellows, as well as support for monthly speakers & trips.
Calendars ordered online cost $25 for each calendar which includes the shipping. You may order up to an additional 2 calendars and not have to pay shipping as long as they are to the same address. Click here to order calendars through the Lead Graffiti website.
The calendars will be available at the APHA National Conference and the chapter Wayzgoose in October for $20. To order online the price is $25 which includes shipping. These make great presents and support an important cause.
It is worth noting that calendar participants contribute their time & materials to the project.
