Donate materials

The Archive’s collection of over 40,000 items continues to grow thanks to generous donations from the community. We are particularly interested in process material, manuscripts, designer/artist archives, and rare type specimens. Contact us and let us know what you have to offer!


Gain hands-on experience with our collection while giving back to the Archive. For more information, please email us with a current CV or resume and a brief note about your skills, experience, and/or interest in the letter arts. For process-based work requiring training (e.g., photography, cataloging, preservation) we ask for a commitment of at least two hours per week.
