At Haven Press Studio, we print fine art by hand.
Printing has a long historical standing as a noble practice; contemporarily, it has become something of a curiosity as digital media begin to outweigh it. The idea for this shop was born out of an interest in providing accessibility to printmaking; as it continues to function a growing interest in integrating digital techniques into the process has certainly influenced the function of our space.
But Printmaking, at it's heart, involves a human operator working with equipment, eyes, and hands to produce sets of like objects. This facet of the many sides which make up what printmaking is should continue to be the largest one. And so we continue to spread its influence. We make things and want to help you make things. We think printing is something that most anyone can (and should) learn about. Like any craft, it may take a master to practice it with precision- but the more laypeople know about it, the more it's influence will spread, the more it can be continued as a tradition. People need to continue to be exposed to this black art, even in a time of white digital light; our shop will be a haven for this, the production, distinction and learning of an important craft.
That is why the shop is known as "Haven Press".
What kind of services does Haven Press Provide?
By taking an flexible stance on media within print, offering hand-worked alongside digitally sourced, we offer a diverse strategy for the production of printed matter- old technique meets new technology.
We love providing printing services to artists and designers, publishers, and people who are interested in having something made into an edition- experienced customers or not.
If you're interested in having something made, contact us. We can walk you through the entire process step by step, estimate your custom work, and provide you with a detailed pricing scheme that allows you to tailor a project to your needs. Past works (and future endeavors) include a variety of projects from multi-color mixed media works, photo-intaglio style etchings, to flawlessly executed complicated print-related projects like books, beautiful/simple works on paper with a perfectionists edge, large format screen prints both conventional and involving the use of alternative materials, precisely printed letterpress stationary and calling cards printed by hand, wedding invitations, and the list goes on and on.
Haven press also provides press rental. By opening up it's printmaking workspace for experienced print artists to come and practice their craft on communal equipment, we are keeping in mind our mission to spread the influence of print. This is facilitated through day rentals and is a membership-based cooperative; members can be involved in various levels of use.
