Transfigure Print Collective Press Upgrade

Donation protected
Hello, my name is Bailey Sell, owner/founder and head printer behind Transfigure Print Collective. TFPC is a Trans and Queer owned and led screen printing collective of five that works for and with the LGBTQ+ community.

Since our inception in 2019, we have raised over $75,000 for Trans and Queer folks around the world. We have been able to donate a percentage of total sales from the screen-printed apparel and other goods we sell to 50+ Trans centered organizations, nonprofits, and collectives. Over the years, we have commissioned and collaborated with many Trans and Queer artists to fundraise for multiple different causes and initiatives.

Within the $75k raised, $16k was given DIRECTLY to Trans folks through our support fund initiative. This initiative is a no questions asked, one-time donation, to any Trans person in need of financial assistance, and is funded by direct donations or a percentage of sales when donations aren’t received.

I created this gofundme to hopefully upgrade our current print situation. I have gone from printing shirts out of my college bedroom to running one of our two manual presses in our current production space. However, as some other printers may know, manual printing - especially on such a large scale - can take a physical toll on you. This year I hired another printer to help lessen the workload (shoutout to my righthand man Evan), but even with an extra set of hands, we can only take so much and both Evan and I are beginning to feel the ramifications of such labor-intensive work. We would also love to be able to take on more jobs, but as it stands, we have to turn some folks away.

I have recently received an estimate from an automatic screen printing company for a new automatic printing press, which would be a HUGE upgrade from our current setup, and would allow for less physical toll on Evan and I, while allowing TFPC to produce more prints for our community.

Any money collected would go to the total cost - a portion will be paid for by a small business loan, and 20% will be paid for directly from our savings.

Any amount helps, even sharing a link to your social media would be greatly appreciated. If there are any questions or you would like to make a direct donation through a different platform please don't hesitate to reach out to me through our website .
