150 Plaque for PP Summer

Artist’s rendering of the 150th Anniversary Printer Plate with 150 individual, engravable plaques.

To celebrate the MNA’s 150th Anniversary in 2017, we have commissioned the creation of a plate that will become part of the Don Brown Press that sits in the MNA Office (pictured below). The plate will hold 150 individual, engravable plaques.

We are inviting MNA members and friends to purchase one of the available plaques. Each 1″ X 3″ plaque can be engraved with your own custom message.

The proceeds from all plaque purchases will directly benefit the programs of the Minnesota News Media Institute, and ensure continued training and educational opportunities for newspaper professionals throughout the state of Minnesota.

This piece will be a part of MNA history for many years. The plaque plate will also be portable. This will enable it to be a part of many MNA & MNI events, including the MNA Annual Convention.
