I'm moving to Washington DC from Providence and I'm on the lookout for a public or semi-public facility where I can print for a not-too-large fee. I tried Pyramid Atlantic but they were trying to rape my wallet with $60-$100 A DAY (8 hrs) printing fees. And I woulda had to show my portfolio to a "master printer."
I'm sort of unfamiliar with the DC area so any leads would be appreciated. I know how to print on fabric/paper/etc already so I don't need to take an introductory workshop.
even if that's a good price, I don't have that kind of money. My prints don't bring in enough money to support that. I have screens and inks and everything I need except for an exposure table, print table and a pressure washer.
Don't let stuff like that stop you. We all want an Idea shop but as long as you have a room and desire all the rest will come into play. When I first started out it was all done in a room and it was all hand made from what ever I could get my hands on. I started shooting my screens with the sun. A flat piece of masonite and some hinge claps. Tape down the corners of the paper so it wouldn't lift, stacking stuff where ever I could. like PJ harvey said. "Is this Desire"
