We currently have 3 poster designs we are working on for February. More details as we flesh them out and start printing. But if you are going to a big show this month (and there are plenty to choose from) buy a commemorative poster. The blood, sweat and coffee induced fury of a local screen printer probably went into making that piece of art exist. Support your local screen printer, so we can keep gig posters alive in Austin!

Workshops For February

These are the Workshops that we have planed for February. The Start to finish workshop will take you through all the steps for printing. We will cover every thing for A to Z. This is a great workshop for people that want to start screen printing and we will teach you all the steps. For this class everyone should bring there own design to print or stop by before class in order to get a design ready for print. You will walk away with your own custom design shirt and with all the knowledge need to start printing.

The next workshop planed is candy colors. Which will feature a 4 color screen print in which humans will vote for what color to print for each screen. We will provide candy to simulate your minds and everyone will leave with a shirt. All colors will be made fresh by using CMKY to provide our color matches. We will show how to set up a four color print and everyone will get a turn printing out the design.

The final workshop we have is a experimental workshop that will showcase what humans can do when we work together. Poster Collective is more advanced workshop that aims at forming a poster design around a collective concept. We will take you through the different options of how to form a designs in order to get to a final output for a poster. Day 1 will focus on design and day two will aim at printing/alignment of different color layers. Everyone will leave with a fresh print and knowledge of poster print/design.

Class sizes are very limited, so sign up now. We are looking forward to spreading knowledge because ultimately knowledge is power.

New Cloud Melt Poster

This a new limited edition poster print that was inspired by the rainy days we've had in Austin, Texas recently. It turns those gray days upside down.

This poster was first done as a water color and than reproduced as a limited edition hand screen printed poster. These posters are available online for only $25 or you can come by the shop to pick one up. Get 'em while they're hot.

We also have some misprints of this design for only $10 available only at the store. Only 22 prints were made in this color edition. Each poster is signed and numbered by the artist Michael Fuchs.
This is a 5 color poster.

We are also about to put up our workshop schedule for the month of February in a few days. Check back at the blog or our website soon for more details. Please be sure to call in advance to reserve your spot before they fill up.

Check out the badass image Eric Benton created for our patch workshop. It is being held on Jan 26th. See our website for more info.

Everyone who attends will get to make a limited edition two color patch and learn the processes behind going from drawing to screen print.

Bring yourself and some blank garments if you want to throw some additional ink. Bring a friend and bring some beers. It will prove to be a grand old time.

Free Screen Printing Workshop!

Come join us Tuesday Jan 26th for an after hours screen printing workshop. This is free to all who attend!

If you have ever been curious about how screen printing works or how you can take your digital art and convert it to a tangible medium screen printing is must have knowledge.

In this, our first of many free workshops, we will take you through the process of creating a two color image. From digital print out to setting it up on the press and everything else in between. At the end of the night we will host a drawing contest and create a simple single color screen from the voted winner.

Everyone will leave with a logo patch and some brain chewing knowledge. If you have any questions call the shop. 512-344-4588

Sign up is not required.

New Website!!!

I just started a new website for the shop and am attempting to link a blog to it. Will it work, who the hell knows. Html is my nemesis, but soon enough I will have vanquished it in a fashion befitting of legend.
