Contribute To Help Save Letterpress History

The world's most extensive wood type museum needs our continued support! Hamilton continues to incur massive costs from their move to their new location. Over the past year we have raised over $30,000 through contributions to this website and Neenah’s matching donations! But that is not the end of our support! We are continuing The Beauty of Letterpress to help Hamilton as much as possible. Your contributions for prints will help to preserve this historic type collection. All of the proceeds go directly to the Hamilton Museum!

These beautifully designed and expertly printed limited edition posters and prints are available to you for a small donation. These letterpress prints will be on your wall for years to come. It's art coming from a TRUE CRAFT.

Thanks,
Neenah
