Donate materials or time to print shops in and around San Juan:
visit our Print Shop Registry to see how you can contribute!

Or make a cash donation here!

Our Print Shop Registry compiles a list of new or gently used print shop supplies, tools, and time/expertise requests, needed by our colleagues in San Juan. The list is an alternative registry; it does not sell the items directly, but instead asks for donated items or time.

How the Registry Works:

  1. Bring extra items from your studio; buy items from favorite print shop supplier; or ask your print program or community to donate supplies
  2. Let us know what you’re bringing: on the registry, click on the ‘Give this gift’ button, and the gift will be claimed in your name.
  3. Bring the items with you in your luggage (or a friend’s!) to the designated drop-off spot at Puertográfico. If necessary, we can provide a shipping address.

How to Donate Your Expertise:

For the items requesting help/time in the studios repairing equipment, we have a general calendar listing a window of time ranging 1 week before the conference through one week after the conference; however, exact dates/times you are able to help should be emailed to jvelasquez at fau dot edu for coordination with local print shops in San Juan.
