Studio

Studio memberships will be available when we open our expanded space at 4700 Kingsessing, currently undergoing renovations. Our Signmaker letterpress and wood type, as well as assorted book making supplies, are currently set up at our short term space at 1323 S. May St.

Studio members have access to all of our equipment as well as the various supplies needed for your project in our non-toxic studio, including some screenprinting inks and photo-emulsion. We request that you bring your own paper as well as relief/letterpress inks for printing. We anticipate re-opening our studio in an expanded space in 2018. Sign up for our mailing list to be notified about our opening date and other events.
