About us

The Association of European Printing Museums is a printing heritage network. Membership is open to:

  • museums given over wholly or partly to the history and/or art of printing and graphic communication (typography, engraving, graphic design, bookbinding, books, newspapers, advertising art, textile printing, etc.),
  • print workshops who are actively involved in the preservation and use of historical techniques, machines and tools, and the transmission of traditional skills,
  • private collectors of machines, ancillary equipment, archives and documentation relating to the history of printing and graphic communication,
  • Independant or academic researchers and anyone actively interested or involved in the preservation and promotion of printing and graphic heritage.

Annual membership fee:

  • ordinary members: 50 euros
  • supporting members: 200 euros, or more

The AEPM offers:

  • privileged access to an extensive network of printing, book, paper and graphic arts museums, as well as many of the heritage workshops and collectors with whom they regularly work,
  • an annual meeting/conference hosted by a different European printing museum each year,
  • access to shared experience of the management, display and mediation of collections in the broad field of graphic heritage,
  • your organisation’s profile on the AEPM website with direct access to keep it up-to-date,
  • direct posting of news of your organisation’s activities on the AEPM website,
  • posting of all information in your preferred language. For practical reasons the ‘official’ language of the AEPM is English, but exchanges regularly take place in all combinations of European languages and the website has been designed to manage multilingual content,
  • regular news of the activities of the AEPM and of its members,
  • regular offers of traditional printing equipment.
