There is a certainty in the printed word, and at Ladyfingers Letterpress, we express that same certainty in the belief that new futures where people are safe, seen and celebrated are possible. We live in an extraordinary time where there are incredible injustices happening every day and where our main vehicle of information is the internet, a place rife with misinformation and where truths are often twisted. Our response comes from a place of organizing and healing, pushing forward a positive message that people can emotionally and physically hold onto. In the words of Amos P. Kennedy, we “Put the message in the hands of the people and move on.”
Join Colorado Springs-based Ladyfingers Letterpress as they discuss their approach to message making, from pen to press. For the past 12 years they have joined the art of hand-lettering and letterpress as the basis of their creations, often blurring the lines between art and activism. As a trans and queer-owned business, they create work from their lived experiences and work to create a world in which others can do the same.
