The Moveable Type Truck is coming to Gus & Ruby Letterpress!!

Guess what?! The Moveable Type Truck is coming to Gus & Ruby Letterpress!!! We, truly, couldn't be more excited to host this awesome event. The Type Truck is the brainchild of printer Kyle Durrie (designer and printer of Power + Light Press - one of our favorite lines of humorous greeting cards here in the store). Kyle converted an old Chevy van into a mobile letterpress print shop and has been traveling around the country the past few months bringing printing to the people. Inside the truck, Kyle gives visitors a first-hand look at letterpress printing. You'll have the chance to learn all about the craft, the machines and even try some printing yourself!

So many of you, our faithful, fabulous, funtastic fans have asked to come see our presses in action and, unfortunately, due to the set-up of our print shop, it's not been feasible for us. So, we are so excited that y'all can come by next week and visit the Type Truck to get a good looksee at exactly what we do (even if these aren't the actual G&R presses). Plus, Kyle is totally rad and her work is hilarious and awesome.

The truck will be parked in front of Gus & Ruby Letterpress:
