La Cucaracha Press now offers live-printing services where we’ll bring the printshop to you.  Celebrate a special event and treat a group to a fully interactive printmaking experience.  We’ve been printing shirts, totes, and other goods all over the city at special events, and it is amazing how well people take to the experience of printing their own goods with their own two hands.  We bring the equipment, provide the blank goods, and even bring trained help to show your guests how to do everything.

Pricing depends on a lot of factors including event size.  We can handle events of 100-50,000 people and have experience serving groups for short duration events and full weekend festivals.  Contact the shop for more info to see how we could be printing at your next big thing.


LOS ANGELES – February 2016

For two and a half days we printed while the Air + Style music and snowboarding festival went on all around us.  Our booth was a haven away from the music and the madness where concert goers could unwind, charge their phones, and engage in a number of cool hands-on projects.  Did I mention it was all free to the public?  We had print-your-own tote bags, public murals, and workshops in leather craft, brand design, and tile making.

The group who did the event last year is now called Collective EX.  We would love to do another A+S again, so we’ll see what the future holds.




We did a 4-hour stint printing around 300 shirts live with all of the staff of Barkley, a huge marketing firm here in Kansas City.  They drank, hung out and did a number of activities including ours.  For us, we were busy printing straight through for the entire time until shirts ran out.  We all had a great time, and everyone who got to attend and get cool free shirts were all quite satisfied.
