Cancellation Policy

Please try to cancel at least 72 hours before the workshop, except in case of emergency. If you need to cancel, please email us in advance so we can offer the spot to somebody else. There is no fee.

We created this print room because we could not afford the price of commercial printing. The project runs on a shoestring budget. If you can afford to pay more, please do. If you don’t have the money, please don’t be shy about showing up empty handed.

Paying suggested amounts helps fund the workshop and print shop to continue, and covers the cost of materials for you to take home a stack of colorful prints!
