We are seeking an outstanding guy or gal to work with us this summer in our studio. If this interests you, here’s what we have to offer:
-Internship from approximately mid May – mid/late August (specific dates are not set). Roughly 15 weeks total.
-150-200 hours total working time (10-15 hours/week.)
-A regular schedule with occasionally flexible hours. We have weird work weeks sometimes.
-Unpaid, sorry, but we do offer 2 weeks of studio access at the end of the internship as a thank you.
Intern tasks will be varied, and could include: sorting type, reclaiming screens, proofing fonts, cleaning, packing posters, assisting with print runs, and helping with shop organization. A good understanding of either letterpress or screenprinting (or both!) is recommended, but not absolutely necessary.
After a summer working with us, you will have first hand experience assisting in a public-access print studio, hands-on experience in typesetting, all aspects of letterpress and screenprinting, and helping with the occasional commercial printing job.
Think you have what it takes? Email your resume, cover letter, and list of references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due by Monday, April 29th. Please use Summer Internship 2013 as your email subject line.
We look forward to hearing from you!
