*NEW* 2 HOUR ASSISTED PRINTING SESSION

This session is for anyone who has taken a workshop with us, has a project in mind, but is a little hesitant to come back and print again on their own. This 2 hour session includes one-on-one assistance to help you get started on your own project in either screen printing or letterpress printing. Your assisted session will include help on set up, a printing process refresher, and advice and guidance on your specific project.

Here’s how it works: purchase your 2 hours here, then go to our reservations page, create a username and password, and choose your rental time. In the notes section, just say it’s your 2-hr assisted session and we’ll be ready for you! You can rent longer than 2 hours, but our overall assistance will encompass about 2 hours of your working time. We promise you’ll leave with something you’re satisfied with and thrilled to have made yourself! And your next time back printing on your own will be even easier.
