How To Make Printmaking Accessible To All

BY BRYAN BAKER
@ VOL 14 ON FEB 12, 2015

Striped Light is a creative output imprint producing fine art, recorded material, and cultural experiences. This new establishment is the studio, office, and team headquarters for a trio of creative minds that have joined forces. They will be publishing, collaborating, and exploring tangents of their own volition as works are developed for the Striped Light catalog and portfolio. This team of experienced printers will also be available for hire, offering limited-edition custom letterpress design and printing for events, business ephemera, and artistic ventures.

Hands On Press, at Striped Light, is a space where creative collaborations can take place and unique editions get released. A letterpress print shop where projects can be realized by the public at large. It’s a learning center where classes lead to press rental. Retail and gallery space will show off what we do best and creative collaborative events will get scheduled regularly. What we need now is you.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Tuesday, August 25th, 2015.
