New Jersey Printmaking Council Autumn Trade Print

Call for Entries!

Thanks to Shelley Thorstensen, the PCNJ is now on BYO's radar. Linda Helm Krapf, their executive director, generously gifted an oversize light table to BYO a few weeks, and then promptly visited us during our September Open House!

Since my co-founder is a New Jersey resident, it's only natural that we make an effort to participate!

If you want to participate, but do not have access to a shop to do so; you can rent time at BYO!

If you would like to participate in the exchange (and who doesn't love a good print trade...), email us at for the entry form.

Here's the skinny:

The Printmaking Center of New Jersey invites you to participate in our first autumn Print Exchange, to benefit the studio of PCNJ.


“see”change: gradual transformation in which the form is retained but the substance is replaced

12 identical prints, that are numbered, signed, and dated (in pencil) should be sent in a envelope to the address posted below with archival tissue in between each print and a piece of thin cardboard to keep them as flat as possible.

After receiving everyone's prints PCNJ will randomly divide up the prints and you will be sent 10 new and different prints from other participants. PCNJ will keep one of the 12 for its collection and a few selected prints will be chosen for a suite that will be on display at various locations. Postage for returning the 10 new prints will be paid for by PCNJ. Your donation will help us out tremendously.

Cyanotype workshop at The Random Tea Room, July 16, 2017

Sunday July 16th 11AM

Revel in the glory of the powerful rays of the sun with printmakers from BYO Print, and make traditional-style cyanotype prints, also known as sun prints. 

We provide all the materials you'll need to make a unique print to take home. You can also BYO objects to use that are opaque and flattish. Feathers, pressed flowers, stencils are great for this. 

Spend an afternoon in the backyard of the tea room with an Iced Tea and good company. RSVP via email to Workshop cost is $10 per person, and you will make one print. (Because of the cost of supplies for this workshop, you can make additional prints for an additional fee.)
