What exactly is St. Printersburg?

While there’s more than one aspect of the event, the core of St. Printersburg is a print fair celebrating a variety of increasingly obscure printing methods considered by many to be obsolete compared to modern printing technologies. The “slow print” movement argues that notion is incorrect and celebrates the unique attributes achievable via screen printing, letterpress printing, block printing, and other “outdated” methods.

How much does it cost to attend?

Attending the printers fair portion of St. Printersburg is free! While you’ll have the opportunity to peruse and purchase goods created by various vendors in attendance, there is no admission fee.

To attend the screening of Pressing On: The Letterpress Film at the Museum of Fine Arts, you will be required to pay their admission fee.

Will food and drink be available?

Black Crow Coffee Roasters and Squeeze Juice Works operate cafes onsite. Black Crow offers their own locally roasted, small batch coffee and a variety of delicious pastries. Squeeze Juice Works offers cold-pressed organic juice, unique coffee and tea concoctions, and a small selection of beer and wine.
