About Custom Printing

Open Studio works with artists and galleries to realize custom printing projects on a case-by-case basis. In consultation with our Technical Director, we can help determine the best means to carry out your project. Our main focus is working with traditional print practices such as etching, relief, screenprinting, lithography and letterpress. If your project does not strictly fall into one of the above categories, but is still rooted in print media, don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss the possibilities.

Interested in working with us?

Open Studio charges an hourly rate ($60/hr), plus the cost of materials to print custom projects. We offer project estimates and make every attempt to be accurate, but as studio work begins with our printers, the final costs may fluctuate up or down. Our estimates are based on variables such as required number of impressions, medium used, colour changes and physical print size.

Turn-around time for custom printing varies depending on what projects we currently have in the studio, printer availability and project demands. Scheduling is arranged on a case-by-case basis.

If you have any inquiries or would like to start the process of getting a custom printing project estimate, please e-mail the Technical Director.
