Materials The Print Program offers silkscreen printmaking services with the capacity to accommodate projects in non-traditional and technically ambitious media and printed at scales larger than typically feasible with traditional printing presses. The print team applies over 100 years of combined experience across silkscreen among other printmaking techniques and welcomes projects that require experimentation.

Introducing New Wide-Format Latex Printing Services

The new digital print format enables the production of images up to ten feet wide and one hundred feet long on a wide variety of media.

Powerhouse Arts introduces a new fabrication offering through its state-of-the-art Print Shop. This exciting technology does not require specially-coated digital materials and allows the use of a range of materials, from traditional artist materials like gessoed canvas to vinyl for vehicle-wraps and dimensional acoustic material for architectural installations.

Odorless and low-emitting, the inks are ideal for sensitive indoor environments where traditional out-gassing is a problem. The ten foot wide roll is the perfect compliment to the Print Shop’s ten- foot-wide printing screens. This equipment expands Powerhouse’s repertoire of large-scale hybrid digital and screen printing abilities.

The print-on-demand advantages of digital printing can empower artists with more economical and expedient solutions when they want to create a single, stand-alone piece or repeat-orders at a later date. For example, Powerhouse seeks to serve the theatrical and performing arts community by offering services to produce scenic backdrops for film and stage. Productions will no longer need to choose from a standard offering of rented backdrops as the capability to produce custom, bespoke dreamscapes will only be a mouse click away.

This wide-format offering also allows the Print Shop to serve the community at large by partnering with local organizations to produce indoor or outdoor signage, step-and-repeat backdrops, and banners for everything from the neighborhood block association to red carpet events. Powerhouse will also offer finishing services bringing two-dimensional images into three-dimensional reality making them ready-for-installation in a wide array of display systems.

Please note: Prices vary depending on the substrate, dimensions, and number of passes of ink. Some unique materials require a lead-time for testing by HP in order to achieve optimal results. Submit your project inquiry at this link and a Powerhouse associate will be in touch with you to discuss next steps.

Powerhouse Arts is a 501c3 located in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Its fee-for-service fabrication programs support the organization’s mission-driven community engagement and strategic partnerships programming.
