MISSION STATEMENT Our goal at DIY Printing is to enrich the lives of artists by providing an open printing studio that supports and encourages the work of artists. DIY provides awareness, outreach and education for the community. Please check out our Facebook page for the latest events at DIY Printing and check out our Etsy Shop for cool, new, hand-pulled art prints by select artists and some awesome T-shirt designs as well. www.etsy.com/shop/DIYPrintingShop?ref=hdr_shop_menu
WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO We are an artist co-op that provides a silk screen studio for use by artists in the community. We not only cater to artists, we also print commercially to pay our bills. We want to support our community in many ways so we print T-shirts, posters, bags, we also promote the use of recycled packaging and creative design, and last, but not least, we provide classes in collaboration with the Art Academy of Cincinnati for adults and teens who want to learn more about screen printing.

MEMBERSHIP & CO-OPS We are a group of screen printers who love what we do and take screen printing seriously. We are also a professional screen printing studio where we learn from artists and hope to educate others about screen printing through community education and additional programming we set up with local businesses and non-profits.
Our silk screen studio is now free for artists to use in exchange for help or putting in time at DIY Printing. We do this because we want to build a community of printers and artists that want to work with DIY Printing on projects including, but not limited to, a fine art print series and anything else that pushes our boundaries.
