"What Would
You Like To Do?"

The Print & Media Lab

Accommodates both traditional & digital processes. You can...

...digitally print your work or do it the old fashioned way. Whatever your fancy you can get your print on in a professional print lab that has all the equipment that you will need (note some materials you will have to be acquired. See Dansby or ask a lab tech. You can also email the print lab for additional materials). You can use the digital printer (with the help of our Large Format Operators), Letterpress, Lithography, Intaglio, Screen Printing and even make a Potato Print or two. Did we also mention that you can bring your dog or cat?

The Print Lab is also used for producing multiples of your work & what not.
If you need to make stuff for class, personal projects or for what ever, you have all the equipment required. For instance the Graphic Design School uses the lab for the production of the always favorite T-Shirt Show and all of the lovely posters that get snatched off the walls of CalArts.

Printing

Now that you have finished your work, you can now add the finishing touches.

For the final steps of the printing process we have a finishing area with tables, cutting mats and binding equipment so you dont have to go all the way back to your studio to do all of the stuff you need to finish a job. It also contains light tables, work tables, paper cutters, carving tools and book making material. (Note: Not all material's are provided by the lab, check lab for materials available or information of where to acquire them)
