Print


Our goal is to provide artists in Central Ohio with the resources to begin or continue their artistic practices.

Columbus Printed Arts Center’s printmaking studio includes all of the equipment and basic tools needed for intaglio, letterpress, relief, screen printing, dye-sublimation, and photo-lithographic processes. Our digital studio is equipped with a professional editing station, the Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop, Epson P9000 and P800 inkjet printers, and an Epson V850 Pro flatbed scanner. Studio daily fee pricing is outlined below.


Artists have the opportunity to work on professionally maintained equipment with knowledgeable staff available to answer questions. If you need a little guidance in the studio with a technique, tool, or equipment, visit the Learn page to schedule a customized Individual Tutorial.

Experienced artists may work in the studio by first becoming a Member. Members can access the studio during operating hours or make equipment reservations by clicking the button below. Reservations are not required but are helpful if you have a specific time frame in which you need to work. Priority will be given to those with reservations, then on a first come, first served basis.
