We are cold and have not posted

Oops! BYO Print has been busy getting ready for the holidays. We've been crafting and printing and winterizing our space and haven't had time for blogging!

I attended the grand opening of Second State Press this past Saturday, and while they are technically 'competition,' they young folks in charge are very nice and I think that the more printshops in Philly the better! Come print etchings with us, but they have a lithography situation that is pretty tops.

I've also just picked up a guest blogging gig over at Handmade in PA, and will be posting every other Tuesday about all things Philly in the art and craft community. Sooo, look for my posts there!


Other news, Lauren and I were finally able to start winterizing the shop (our semi-open floor plan is great for easy of access and spaciousness, but not the best for heating). We've hung a plastic ceiling over the printing area and will continue the ceiling over the rest of the shop this week. Our landlord loaned a serious blast heater that looks like it's right out of Star Wars...but it sure was warm!

Guest printers Melissa and Tim recently printed some nice etchings, and we hope to see them again soon!

We've updated some of the extra pages on this here blog, so you can have access to our rates and equipment lists and artist profiles (to come) without searching through blog post archives.

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.)
