Welcome to the Institute of Packaging Professionals - Cincinnati Chapter


Upcoming Events - 2020

IOPP @ Cincinnati Type & Print Museum
Friday, July 31

More than just a museum.

This building gives hope to the people of Price Hill.

 Join us for a unique interactive tour at the Cincinnati Type & Print Museum.

We consider this museum a value to our community because the Cincinnati Type & Print Museum is preserving the history of printing by keeping people aware of the career opportunities in print media. They are creating an environment for artists to make handmade paper and print letterpress items breaking the cycle of addiction by providing training, jobs, and dignity to women of Price Hill.

Join us on Friday July 31st, 2020

9:30 ARRIVAL open networking with complimentary coffee and bagels

10:00 Host Gary Walton will take us back through the history of typesetting and letter press. We will also get an opportunity to get our hands to work with an interactive activity.

11:30 IOPP Chapter & News

Everyone will leave with a FREE gift from the Museum
