READY SET is a limited edition collection of prints that will be designed by you and letterpress printed by us! Of all submissions received, only ten artworks will be selected for inclusion in the finished limited edition boxed set. Entries will be judged for concept, design, illustration and typography.
1. Send us a digital file of your submission (low-res, under 1 MB, JPG/GIF). You can either email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the upload form at gilahpress.com/readyset. Please be sure to include your name, email address, phone number, the title of your piece, a short artist’s statement (100 words max) and the Pantone color codes of your selected spot colors.
2. Once the jury has sorted through the submissions, each of the chosen artists will be contacted for a final AI/EPS file of their artwork. We will letterpress the artwork, produce an edition of 110 and each of the winning artists will receive their own boxed set of prints.
