We need a New Member!

See how this fancy POST postcard is split into quadrants? That's because we are currently a foursome! We have room for one more printer in the shop, who would like the following perks:

Keys to the building, for unlimited 24/hr access.
A locker, for storing supplies, and non-flat stuff.
2 Flat file drawers, for storing flat things.
A nice place to hang out on First Friday, when our building is abound with activity!
Access to a 15" by 30" steel etching press.
A nice place to work and make prints.
With adequate knowledge, access to some of the machine tools in the building.

If you check through the blog's archives, you'll see that we provide some of the basics, and you supply your own materials for your project, series, experimenting, etc.

We have: blankets, acids, blotter papers, solvents, gloves, tarlatan, newsprint for intaglio
big spaces to carve, barens, and the above for relief printing
(coming soon) exposure unit and washout for silkscreen

We charge a very minimal monthly rent for the above plus access to our shared google calendar, which members use to reserve time on the etching press.

Cheers! And we hope to meet some new printers soon!
