All are Welcome.

Hi everyone, 
In solidarity with our collective social isolation efforts I am reaching out to say thank you, encourage creativity, and offer support to anyone looking for a little help with their creative projects during this time. Just reply to this email with any questions. If we don’t have the answer we can connect you to an artist/instructor that does. 

We are also offering a discount on greeting card sets.  If we can’t hug our loved ones perhaps a hand-written card can go along way. We have our gratitude cards for sale and also happy to work on any custom orders for cards

In collaboration with our Printern Katie Browne of Box Eleven, we also have a new shirt for sale online.  20% of sales will go to Carbondale Arts who deserves our love for having to postpone the fashion show this year. 

I encourage everyone to take this situation seriously but not to panic.  Take care of each other by each doing our part to isolate and stay healthy.  Remember people are scared and spreading messages of love can go a long way.  With that I am sending love to you all, 

design • print • make

Quarterly Club… WEAR IT!

Support the shop with your annual membership or monthly sponsorship.

We are keeping the shop closed to the public for the foreseeable future. We are working with people remotely to help facilitate their creative expression, so reach out if you have questions or ideas. Also please consider joining our Quarterly Club to help support our efforts to facilitate local artist’s experience with production and successful community supported creative expression.

Our next design is in the works as we collaborate with local non-profits to help spread the word about their efforts and celebrate our amazing creative community.

Facilitating creative experiences:


Residence opportunities available with dedicated work space.


Full service print shop with letterpress, screenprinting, relief, monoprint, digital and more.


Limited edition print runs, book publications, branded apparel and more.
