Ladies of Letterpress Scholarship

Because we care about preserving the craft of letterpress printing, Ladies of Letterpress has created a scholarship fund to help defray costs for members interested in taking classes, working in internships/apprenticeships, go to conferences, or other educational activities related to letterpress. Through this scholarship, we want to assist members as they continually grow, learn, and educate others about letterpress printing.

Submission Guidelines:

- We only accept submissions from current members of Ladies of Letterpress.

- The class/educational opportunity must already be scheduled (we can’t make assumptions about possible future events).

- The class/educational opportunity must be related to letterpress printing, or running a letterpress printing business.

- Please share your experience with us! The scholarship recipient must report back after completion of the class/educational opportunity with descriptions and photos of the experience, posted on the Ladies of Letterpress site.

- The scholarship is for $300. If the entire amount isn’t needed, remaining $ will go to a 2nd recipient.

- The scholarship recipient will be reimbursed after the expenses have been paid. Please keep a receipt and send us a copy.


Please answer the following questions:

- Tell us the title, teacher, place and date of the class you want to take (or describe the apprenticeship/internship opportunity):

- What is the cost? (tell us if it’s for tuition, housing, travel, etc.)

- How will this class help you with printing or with your printing business? (please describe in 300 words or less).


Send your responses as a pdf file to jessica.c.white@gmail.com by May 15, 2010.
Winner(s) will be announced June 1, 2010.

Feel free to pass this info along to friends, colleagues, schools and community print shops!

To whom it may concern..I have followed your blog on and off for a little while and came across a letterpress find that is custom made for LOL. I responded to an ad for a Chandler and Price letterpress. I drove to the small town in rural Minnesota to look at the press. I was hoping that it would be a smaller treadle press. The press was a 10 x 15. It had not been run for 30 years but has been kept in a dry barn the whole time. The press was a little stiff, as you might imagine. I turned the flywheel over about 10 times and knew that with a little lubrication it would freewheel easily. The press is in super shape. no welds, three sets of roller cores but the best part was this....The lady who came out of the farm house to tell me the history of the press. Heddy, all of 87 years old 5' 2" and a norwegian firecracker of a lady. she told me how she used to make the press sing. How many impressions per hour she could run. How her boss kept it a secret from the customers that she was the one running the press. She brought out samples of her work. showed me the wedding text type that she printed her wedding announcements with. You could tell that she loved the press and the work. This was when printing was a production job, not an art form. her samples reflected that...Just a light norwegian kiss, easy on the lead. The reason I am posting here is that I do not want the press but I do want all the other things in the barn. I am in a kind of delicate negotiation with the grandson who wants Heddy's history/legacy with this press preserved. From the beginning I thought her story should be preserved along with the press and my thought was that LOL would be the ones to carry this forward...If this is of interest to anyone there Please contact me and we can work on an action plan to make it happen. Contact Jon @ turtlemanfred@gmail.com. Thank you in advance thinking this over. Jon D. Minnetonka MN.
