Open Access Studio - Press for Hire

Open Access Studio - Press for Hire

from 125.00


Upon completion of either the Beginners Class or the Advanced Private Class, you will have the opportunity to use the Saint Gertrude Open Access Studio Program on a press-for-hire basis. The program is loosely modelled on The Arm in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (where Jessica Hische prints her own letterpress work). It been designed to allow designers and illustrators access to letterpress without the need to own a press and all the cost and responsibility associated with it. This is the perfect space to create a personal project or speculative job or add letterpress to your portfolio without having to wait for a client with a letterpress budget.

Saint Gertrude will always be present at your session, but there are two levels of assistance available:

Guided Sessions are for those who require a little bit more hands-on help from Saint Gertrude during your session. I will help you set-up your print job, and troubleshoot throughout.

Solo Sessions are for those who are confident to set-up alone and complete their project without assistance.

Paper and plates are additional to the Press-for-Hire rates. You can either order and bring your own plates and paper, or I can order them for you at a small fee. Rates are inclusive of all other supplies and sundries needed for print and clean-up including: ink, solvent, rags and tools.
