Haven Press Studio is a fine art printmaking workshop located in Brooklyn, New York.

Owner/Operator Mark Herschede uses printmaking techniques and equipment to produce fine art editions for publishers and independent artists. He works closely with clients, fostering a collaborative relationship between the printer and the artist.

Editions we produce are created through the tradition of collaborative printmaking, wherein a skilled artist and a skilled printer work together to make an edition that neither could produce on their own.
The printmaker brings expertise in technique, the artist brings the idea, hands, and image; the result is a printed edition which translates the artist's concepts into an original piece of art, realized in multiple form.

Neither a copy nor a singular work, an original print edition is a set of serial multiple objects made in a unique manner from other original work the artist might create- the creation of prints is unlike the creation of originals, and often inspires like processes and influences artist's perspective.
One of the bet compliments a printer receives is "after working on that edition with you, I started doing ____ because of those prints we made!"; this compliment is received frequently at Haven Press, and is enjoyed every single time.

These works are created on/with paper and other flat stock materials in a variety of printing techniques- silkscreen, letterpress, woodcut, and intaglio/etching traditions are all employed at Haven press.
Whenever possible the artist works with the plate/screen/block/film directly, and the prints are made from this- not a digital copy of an original, but from the original painting/drawing/collage activity of the artist! This is an important distinction to make- if you are in this camp, Haven Press wants to work with you.

The workshop maintains a pool of equipment and stocks materials, offers photo-imaging as well as traditional methods in each of these processes, produces custom inks to match colors and pigments artists already employ. Below is a sample of some of our current clientele.
