IMPRESSIONS16 Print & Book Fair

November 25-27, 2016, 10-4 daily

The Honolulu Printmakers’ annual benefit print sale has morphed into the first ever Impressions Print and Book Fair. It’s the same print sale that you know and love from previous years, located in our studio at the Honolulu Museum of Art as usual, with the addition of a book fair upstairs, where artists will showcase their artists’ books, zines, and book arts projects. All proceeds go directly to support local artists as well as to our ongoing efforts of promote print culture in Honolulu.

THE PRINT SALE features artist’s portfolios containing original, handmade prints and printed objects of all descriptions at affordable prices, including prints on paper, shirts, bags, cards, etc. – anything made by artists using print! Browse through hundreds of handmade, hand-pulled prints and directly support local artists with your holiday shopping!

THE BOOK FAIR is a showcase of artists’ books, zines, DIY comics, hand-bound books, poetry chapbooks, photobooks, etc. – anything that engages with the book as an art form. Featured vendors from Hawaii and beyond include Paradise Cove, Tinfish, Tiny Splendor, Brady Evans, Sonnenzimmer, Cantab Publishing, and UH Printmakers.

All Impressions16 events are free and open to the public.

Friday Night Prints Nov 25 6-8 pm

Honolulu Printmakers invites all printmakers in the state of Hawaii to participate in our Impressions16 Print and Book Fair.  This event is a benefit for our organization that helps us raise money to further our goal of promoting print culture in Hawaii.  It's also a great opportunity for artists to get exposure and sell their work -- hundreds of people will be coming though our studio on that weekend!

The Fair is comprised of two components: the Print Sale and the Book Fair. 

The Print Sale is for artists to showcase portfolios of their print work: we handle the sales. The Book Fair is for artists and publishers to showcase their artists' books and related merchandise; you handle your own sales and keep 100%. Each component works a little differently, so please read the links below for more information, and get in touch if you have any questions about how to participate!

*** If you need assistance with filling out your PDF inventory form, please get in touch. 

Here is an example of a properly filled out inventory form.

The basic steps are to download the form, type in the blue-highlighted fields,  print the document, and deliver it with your portfolio of prints. If your inventory requires more than one page, fill it out, then either print that page, clear the fields, and type in new entries; or, complete the page, use the SAVE AS command to save it as a new PDF (name it some thing like "my_inventory_page_1.pdf"), then clear the fields and add new entries until all of your inventory pages are completed. You can then print multiple inventory pages later and keep an electronic version for your records.
