The studio has 800 sft, multiple work stations and a variety of equipment for differents methods of printmaking. D.M. Penny Press is an open studio, the equipment is shared by all members, and its the resposibility of each member to keep the studio clean and organized.

The studio is non-toxic in that I will strive to only allow the safest procedures for making prints, the goal is solvent-free, Oil inks are fine and vegetable oil is used for cleanup. However this is difficult in letter press and lithography where petroleum based products can be used, but only in the vented area.
