Print Shop

We offer printing services for radical projects. We use a commercial color laser printer to produce flyers, posters, booklets or handouts to support your work.

This service is free for any radical/liberatory project which is not part of an electoral campaign. For projects with available funding, donations are appreciated toward sustaining the print shop. We need money and reams of paper.

Technical Capabilities:

  • Page sizes: Letter, 11×17, Custom (bring your own paper)
  • Grayscale or Color
  • 2-sided
  • Half-fold and Tri-fold brochures
  • Folded and stapled booklets/zines (up to 15 sheets)
