Lower East Side Printshop offers artists and publishers full and affordable access to a variety of printmaking techniques.
We collaborate with artists new to the medium as well as accomplished printmakers. We welcome challenges in making your artistic vision possible.
Services include plate/screen making, archival inkjet (digital) printing, transparency output, and editioning.
Techniques available are monoprint, intaglio, relief, waterbased silkscreen, and archival inkjet printing. Source images may be hand-drawn, photo-based, or digital. Maximum scale for traditional processes is approximately 35” x 50”.

We can work with all kinds of digital images: pdf, tiff, psd, jpeg, etc. Our available software includes Photoshop and Illustrator. High resolution, to-scale files are required for digital projects.
