Screen Print

Screen Print

Art Gym’s screen print area is for flat stock, fine art printing. The main print studio has two hinge clamp stations, each fastened to separate, large, 8’ tables able to accommodate screens up to 31×40 inches. Screen printers have access to a light-safe room suited for all screen preparation needs. Coat, expose, washout, reclaim, dry and store your screens all in one, convenient, dedicated room.

Materials provided by Art Gym: screens, squeegees, emulsion, stencil remover, degreaser, separate scrubbing pads for washing out and reclaiming, and rags. Members are encouraged to utilize our Digital Lab’s large format Epson printer with our 24” in-house film to generate their own positive separations for screen print.

Art Gym is not an apparel printing studio. We do not facilitate the printing of t-shirts, tote bags, etc. Plastisol ink is not permitted. Only water soluble, acrylic based ink can be used in our studio.

Members are responsible for providing all their own ink and paper.

Student: $80/month for one year (Eligible for current students or recent graduates of two years)
