If you love letterpress, issue 8 is full of letterpress goodness: a profile of Studio on Fire, woodtype, and abecedary all about letterpress plus the Letterpress Sampler featuring over 50 printers! In addition, we have themes about miniatures, vintage matchbox labels and other small things. As of this morning, only 18 copies left! Once an issue is sold out, it will not be reprinted.

Sign Painters - Still 2.jpg

We're honoured to support Sled Island  (an annual festival of music and arts in Calgary) as a sponsor of a Sign Painters screening on June 19th. 

This documentary is about the craft of hand-lettered sign making, a once widespread trade that has come close to obsolescence thanks to the proliferation of computer designs, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers. In 2010, Directors Faythe Levine and Sam Macon, with Cinematographer Travis Auclair, began profiling two dozen sign painters dedicated to preserving this time-honoured tradition. UPPERCASE featured Faythe Levine in issue #8.

Janine, Glen and Jocelyn will be handing out a limited quantity of free back issues before and after the show. 

Get your hands on out-of-print back issues!


Do you love UPPERCASE magazine but you're missing a back issue? Have you recently been introduced to this quarterly magazine for the creative and curious and now you wish you had them all?


Here's your chance to purchase an entire stack of all the issues we've ever printed! We have taken a few of our early issues out of our archives for this one-time only auction. (Issues #1-#7 and #12 are completely sold out elsewhere.)


The purpose of this auction is to raise funds for the upcoming studio move (our current home of the past 8 years is in a building slated for "redevelopment" and so we'll be moving to new accommodations later this summer).


Due to the heavy weight of the package, this stack is only available to ship within North America. However, we have created other listings for individual out-of-print back issues #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7 and #12 that we can ship internationally.

Bidding ends next Friday, May 31.

Thank you for your support!
