Type-truck visits Firecracker

Tuesday, February 28, 2012
6:00pm until 9:00pm

Kyle Durrie, of Power and Light Press, will be bringing her mobile type-truck to The Firecracker Press on Feb 28th from 6pm-9pm. She’ll be cruising in from Alabama so please come on down, make some posters, and show her a warm StL welcome.

Kyle’s been traveling the count...ry spreading the “good word” about printing and letterpress. We’re tickled to be considered a stop on her trip! Make a collaborative poster the night of her visit… you print one color on our monster signpress and then run outside to the TypeTruck to print the second color in Kyle’s mobile printing studio.

We’ll have tons of prints for sale (as little as $2) and we’ll have plenty of snacks and drinks on-hand.

What’s better than a mobile printing studio?.. I knew you couldn’t think of anything.

DYNAMITE IGNITES: Typecast Night at Firecracker Press

  • Friday, March 9, 2012
  • 7:00pm until 9:00pm

Typecast Publishing is headed home to St. Louis for a night of poetry that is "cataclysmic in all the ordinary ways." We're celebrating the launch of poet Matt Hart's latest collection, SERMONS AND LECTURES BOTH BLANK AND RELENTLESS. Firecracker Press molded this book into a gorgeous letterpress box set that will melt your hands, so come on down and enjoy a brief reading from the book and a chance to talk with the author. It's an evening designed to refuel your noggin--we promise you'll leave with the muse clinging to the hem of your shirt.

Typecast editor Jen Woods will also be in attendance to talk about new opportunities to publish your work in 2012, as well as show off the latest issues of The Lumberyard.

Mad-Libs style Valentines at Firecracker

From the Firecracker Press:

On Saturday, Feb. 11th from 11am – 5pm we’ll be making custom Valentine cards… mad-libs style. That’s right you fill in the blanks with nouns, verbs, nicknames, etc. and we will print ‘em up in 30 minutes or less. This year the cards are HUGE so they make a big impression as a card or a poster. And we’ll customize a standard envelope for you at no extra charge. Quantities are very limited and due to the popularity of the event we suggest you come early.
