Hello everyone, and thank you for printing around the world this year. We have over 1000 registered printmakers on the blog, and have reached over 15,000 people on Facebook. Printmakers participated from 39 countries and 36 US states.
We’ve found that some of you have had trouble posting images on this blog. We are very sorry about that, and have changed the settings so that you should be able to upload images now. Please do so, we want to hear about your day and see pictures of what you made.
You can always post on our Facebook page too. We’ve discovered that there is an International Print Day FB page, but ours is Print Day in May. Please post to ours!

Since 2007, the Monterey Peninsula College Printmakers have devoted the first Saturday in May to printmaking. What began as locally in the Monterey Bay Area of California has become a world wide event, with printmakers participating from over a dozen countries, on five continents.
By providing a cause for creative synergy and a forum for building and sharing community, the event unites the world printmaking community and fosters a better understanding of the art of printmaking.
Join us as we print on the first Saturday in May. There are many ways to participate. Make a print anywhere, anyhow on that day. Join up with other printmakers, invite guests to join you, work on your own, make handprints with kids or footprints in the sand. Just print, enjoy, share and repeat!
