Calendar of Events

The International Printing Museum: Letterpress Wayzgoose & Surplus Sale

A “Wayzgoose” is a traditional celebration of printers going back to the 16th Century. On Saturday August 7th, The International Printing Museum will continue this age old event with The Letterpress Wayzgoose & Surplus Sale.

Surplus Sale 

The Printing Museum’s annual surplus sale is a rare opportunity for hobbyists, amateurs, and professionals to purchase antique printing presses and supplies, such as Vandercooks, C & P Platens, Windmills, Pocos, Kelseys, Wood Type, Metal Type, Cuts, Printing Supplies, Oak & Metal Type Cabinets, Pilot Presses, Paper Cutters, and lots more.

Live Demonstrations and Activities

On-going activities include a Letterpress Slam using wood type and images from the Museum’s collection, Linotype and Ludlow typecasting, foil stamping, and screen printing souvenir t-shirts.

“Exquisite Corpse” Exhibition Opening

The Los Angeles Printmaking Society will be holding the opening reception to their member exhibition “Exquisite Corpse” being displayed at the Printing Museum through September. Exquisite corpse is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule or by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed. Each artist is invited to create a part or a complete figure, that will be divided up in 3 15 inch square sections: head, midsection and legs. The curators of the exhibition will then mix and match the different pieces.

WEBINAR: What Every Business Owner Must Know and Do to Avoid a Crippling Ransomware Attack

Any business that thinks they’re immune from the possibility of cyberattacks is wrong. Today every company, regardless of size or industry, is a potential target. What’s worse, cyberattacks such as ransomware attacks are not just crippling—they can be completely devastating. A whopping 60% of small businesses close within six months of a cyberattack.

This webinar, presented by Scott Hagizadegan, CEO of PIASC partner Shield IT Networks plus three guest experts, is meant to help ensure that your business does not become a victim of this type of attack.

Join us to learn:

  • The key issues and primary root causes of ransomware attacks
  • Why all backups are not safe
  • What you need to know about the layered approach to cybersecurity
  • New ways that cybercriminals are breaching companies’ defenses – and next generation options for thwarting them
