Printmaking is the process of applying an image onto material to create artwork or wearable designs. MADE Makerspace in St. Louis has a handful of printmaking machines, each used for different applications.
Screen printing is commonly used to apply a drawing or design onto t-shirts or tote bags. MADE’s screens are available for members to use, and can be customized using our vinyl cutter.
The etching press at MADE can be used in conjunction with our CNC router or laser cutter to print large-scale woodblock prints onto fabric, wood, paper, and more!
Printmaking has both artistic and functional purposes. Printing onto t-shirts in our screen printing bay allows you to brand your own company, or sell swag to fundraise for your non-profit. Printing onto broadcloth on the etching press at MADE allows you to create your on fabric designs for apparel or upholstery! If you’re a St. Louis artist, printing allows you to re-create your designs so you can sell more art at a more affordable cost to your patrons.
