    York College's AIGA Student Group and the Graphic Design program at York College of Pennsylvania invite you to a screening of Pressing On: The Letterpress Film.

    Erin Beckloff, letterpress printer, filmmaker, and graphic design educator presents Pressing On: The Letterpress Film. The film is a documentary about the survival of letterpress printing featuring remarkable printers who are preserving the history and making the craft thrive. The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretaker's age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has letterpress survived in a digital age?

    Q&A with Erin Beckloff will follow the film.
