The Beaver Press is open for printing on Tuesday afternoons from April 4 to May 16, 2017.
Space is limited, so please sign up here.

Have you ever wanted to set type the way Johannes Gutenberg and Benjamin Franklin did?  Print your own political pamphlets and broadsides?  Design greeting cards and announcements?  Now you can do these things and more at The Beaver Press Print Shop, MIT's own handset printing press, located in Barker Library.  The press was built in 21H.343 during Spring 2016; learn more here and here
