Incandescent needs a new Printer

$2,500 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 43 people in 2 months

Incandescent is a photography zine that features color analog work by emerging photographers. It is edited and produced in Portland, Oregon by Pine Island Press. Started in 2012 by three friends Michael Cardiello, Marissa Csanyi, and Helen Jones, it is currently run by Helen and a rotating cast of helpful pals and supporters. Incandescent's goal has always been to be able to show new photography work at an affordable price without asking for submission fees. So far we have had the honor of sharing the work of over 250 photographers from almost 50 countries around the world.

When first starting out we thought that this was going to be a smaller project than it turned out to be. Thrilled with the amount of amazing submissions we received, we quickly realized that the printer we originally purchased could not handle the demand. We raised money through Kickstarter to purchase a new printer that was more efficient and helped keep the cost down for the last 6 years. Unfortunately that printer has had its last meltdown. If we are to keep up Incandescent we will need to replace it with a new cost effective printer. That will take between one and three thousand dollars, but will allow us to keep the sale price at a reasonable $14 and to continue to not charge submission fees – something we are absolutely committed to.

We hope to raise this money here on GoFundMe. If we do not raise enough for a new printer we will put the money raised towards printing Issue Fourteen using an outside source and making an absolutely stellar last issue before discontinuing the project.

Photographers - don't forget to  submit to Issue Fourteen, the deadline is June 15th.
