Free and open to the public
We love paper, and to celebrate its many wonderful qualities, Signal-Return is sponsoring a free open house for designers, artists, advertising agencies, students and printers. We will have representatives from French, Mohawk and Neenah paper mills and Legion Papers join us to share their products with the Detroit creative community. In honor of Earth Day, we promote sustainability as a community, earth friendly papers and sustainable production methods will be featured.
Our colleagues from the printing industry, Behrmann Printing, Berci Letterpress, Utley Brothers and KTD Print will also be present to share their expertise. Specialty Bindery (formerly, The Bessenberg Bindery) will be present to share their handcrafted bookbinding and decorating.
Signal-Return artists will be printing on select papers provided by our friends, the commercial paper mills present. We’re pleased to share that Detroit artist and papermaker Meg Heeres will be demonstrating hand papermaking.
We are delighted to also be unveiling the winners of our first poster design contest representing the musical legacy of our Motor City. The winners will be present with their award-winning posters.
Join us for information, paper samples, demonstrations, refreshments and fun!
