Printmakers are passionate about their art, but most can’t squeeze a one ton press down their basement stairs. That’s where we come in! Our press is set up and just waiting for your
print. You bring the inks, paper and printing plate in whatever form (no lithography), and let our press bring your image to life. The press is reserved for a single artist at a time,
so you can focus on your work exclusively and without interruption.
Our printmaking studio is equipped with the largest-format press Conrad makes, so your creativity can know no bounds! Custom-built to suit the needs of our printmakers, our press features a chrome-plated upper roller, and a micrometer gauge which provides the printmaker with easy-to-repeat, precise settings calibrated to within .0001 inch.

Our professional grade etching press is at your service and can produce either small or very large prints. Printmakers working in linoleum, woodcut, wood engraving, etching, monoprint, monotype, collagraph, drypoint, and various other techniques will all find our press very accommodating.
Bring in your prepared plate, inks, brayer and paper. Most plates can be worked on or refined at the workbench, but metal etchings requiring acid immersion should be ready to print, as we do not provide for the acid wash. We can not accommodate lithography. .
