Spreading the Joy of Reading with Out of Print

Out of Print restores a love of reading in America, and provides books for children in Africa, who otherwise might never learn to read. They also work with Fair Trade manufacturers, so you can feel good about their products from creation to final impact.

Each product reflects a great book (or maybe looks like a library card)! For each product sold, Out of Print donates a book through Books for Africa, an organization that sends books to over 20 different countries. Out of Print also partners with First Book, READ Alliance, and other schools and English classrooms. Co-founder Jeff shares, “We started Out of Print to celebrate people’s favorite stories and to spread the joy of reading . . . it’s our hope that everyone has access to books and an equal opportunity to be educated and inspired by their contents.” 

Jeff’s love of reading goes all the way back to the first grade, when he participated in a March of Dimes charity read-a-thon, and read dozens of books in just a few months. Jeff shares, “this sparked my lifelong love of the written word” and, “reading to me has always been an escape and an adventure.” When asked about his favorite book, Jeff didn’t hesitate to share: “Count of Monte Cristo, hands down.”

Out of Print also has a fundraising option — what a perfect way to encourage reading, help students around the world, and raise support for your school or organization!

 For all our book-loving friends (and for those who just love creative apparel!) take a look at our favorite Out of Print Products!
