Bracelet Press is a small publishing outfit located in Lawrence, Kansas. In 2015, we received a grant from the University of Kansas to purchase a used risograph machine. In the Spring of 2016, we brought home our riso and got to work fixing it up and making test prints.
Our goal with Bracelet is to share in independent publishing with professional, amateur, and children artists and writers from across the country.
