Minutes from the 1/28/11 Meeting

Welcome back to all! Here's to a great year!

First Order of Buisness: "No Name, No Slogan"

- The club portfolio exchange is now ready to be picked up! Those who participated in "No Name, No Slogan" may pick up their portfolio in the printshop!

Second Order of Business: Semesterly Club Dues

- It's that time again to pay your semesterly dues of $25. It is with this money that the club orders supplies, organizes fundraisers, gets participating members to conferences, brings in visiting artists and so much more! So please to all members, pay them within the next 2 weeks.

- Checks are made out to Adrian Chin. You may turn them into Kyle, Adrian or Jessica.

Third Order of Business: Undergrad Participation

- All undergrad printmaking majors, the club would like to invite you all to attend club meetings, fundraisers and events and upcoming conferences!

-If you have any questions about the club and what we do, feel free to ask members if you see them in the shop (there's also a grad in almost every print class this semester) as well as your instructors, Mike Barnes, Ashley Nason or Anna Kenar.

Fourth Order of Business: Printbanger's Ball/SGC

- Mike Barnes' press, Rockpile Press, would like to team up with Bandolier Press for Tom Huck's Printbanger's Ball during this year's SGC conference in St. Louis!!

- This means coming together as a club to create merchandise to sell at the booth. Some ideas that were shared at the meeting were: t-shirts (duh), pennants, magnets, stickers, patches, totes, temporary tattoos, skate decks and decals.

- For all this merch we would print up some designs that would sell (not just Bandolier Press stuff).

- The club has agreed to meet every Friday until SGC (March 16th-19th) to put our heads together and get this merch cranked out. We expect some sort of effort put forth by every member since it will be a huge task!

- Also, don't forget to register for SGC ASAP!!!! Deadline is approaching!

Fifth Order of Business: Printpalooza!!

- Not really an order of business, but just wanted to say awesome job to Eric Fuertes and John Medina for kicking some ass at this weekend's Printpalooza in Evanston!

- Go here to see a video of the two of them with the infamous Dumbo Press!!
