10th Annual Wayzgoose & Steamroller Smackdown
August 27, 2011 1-6PM
School of Visual Concepts, 500 Aurora Ave N, Seattle WA 98109

You’re invited to our 10th annual festival of all things letterpress. While a decade of Wayzgoose fun is definitely something worth celebrating, so is the School of Visual Concepts’ 40th birthday. Since 1971, SVC has been helping people learn the art and craft of design, copywriting, and for the last ten years, letterpress printing. So come join us for a grand old time that’s been 40 years in the making. This free and family-friendly event features:


If you’re a letterpress printer, or thinking of becoming one, come check out the great deals on type, metal cuts, and equipment. Or come sell your extra stuff. It’s free, fun, and gets it done!

Sellers please RSVP to Sherry Perrault, Equipment Swap Coordinator: sherryperrault at comcast.net


The center stage event! Top artists and design firms hit the SVC parking lot to print oversized posters with the hefty help of a two-ton steamroller instead of a traditional printing press. We’ll auction off these giants of design (the posters, not the people) to benefit SVC’s letterpress programs.


Letterpress printers from all over the Pacific Northwest will be on hand selling their gorgeous, handmade letterpress cards, books and ephemera.


Enjoy delicious treats from food vendors and toe-tapping music from the Canote Brothers, keeping time to the steady beep of the steamroller.
