plenty of elbow room
to create projects

Ink Lounge has 2 options for screenprinters to schedule open studio time to print projects. Our goal is to make sure you are efficient and successful – and studio equipment is used properly and kept in good condition for the benefit of all printers.

$1O/HR

Open Studio

The Open Studio rate is for printers that have completed the Ink Lounge Beginning Ink workshop or one of our private Beginning Ink workshops.

In order to qualify for the Open Studio rate you must be able to work independently in the following areas: coating screens, exposing screens, registration of art work, printing, and reclaiming screens.

Studio Assistants are here to help print transparencies and give advice on printing issues to make sure your prints are coming out super fine.

Please make sure your files are ready to print with registration marks if needed. (templates)

Hourly Fee Includes: your own printing area, use of our screens and materials for coating, prepping and reclaiming.

Additional Fees: may include ink, transparencies, adding in registration marks, and other items  – please see right column for details.

$2o/HR

Assisted Open Studio

The Assisted Open Studio rate is for printers that have taken a shorter craft workshop, have experience working in other studios, or it's been awhile since you took Beginning Ink and need some refreshing.

If you haven't taken Beginning Ink, a Studio Assistant will prep your screens, get your art registered, help troubleshoot during the printing process, and reclaim your screens when you're finished printing.

Fees for Assistant to Prep Screens
Small Screens (18x20 or 20x24): $25
Medium Screens (23x31): $35
Large Screens (25x36): $45

Hourly Fee Includes: help from Studio Assistant, your own printing area, use of our screens and materials for coating, prepping and reclaiming.

Additional Fees: may include ink, transparencies, adding in registration marks, and other items  – please see right column for details.

Reminders:

* Open Studio is not a drop in situation as we often run workshops or events that may take up the entire studio. But we will do our best to accommodate everyones schedule.

* Because we stagger printers by 30 minutes, please be on time so we don't have too much overlap in coating and exposing.

* Last pull at 30 minutes prior to studio closing in order to give you time to clean up and/or heat set fabric items.
