On Tuesday, August 6, thirty AIGA Baltimore members and friends stopped in to Baltimore Print Studios on North Avenue ready to put ink to paper. Each attendee was given opportunities for some hands-on tasks, including hand pressing coasters, running off posters on an antique machine, and even putting together a cut-and-assemble mini Vandercook press.

Kim and Kyle, the proprietors of Baltimore Print Studios, were on hand to give demos, talk about background history, and answer attendees’ questions. While they do offer printing services, the studio also teaches classes in both printmaking and screen-printing and is open to the public to rent by the hour. Featuring four 75-year-old presses, screen-printing materials, and drawers (and drawers) of woodblock type, they definitely cater to the do-it-yourself designer!

Did you miss the event? AIGA Baltimore members Justin and Giordana were gracious enough to take a video demonstrating how to use the Vandercook press.

Be sure to check out for their operating hours, their class schedule, and prints for sale. Make sure you follow them on Twitter @baltimoreprints and Instragram, too.

Greg Jericho spends an awfully lot of time designing for clients that do not exist at his equally fake company, Myopic! Studio.

Kate Lawless often daydreams about how she can make a full-time job out of what she does for AIGA Baltimore. When her head isn’t in the clouds, you can find her designing communications, digital signs, documentation, and online software demonstrations and interactive elearning for the operations department of a large healthcare company in Baltimore.
