I am very happy to introduce this very special project. Friends With Benefits is a collaborative printmaking project created to unify the sometimes removed and anonymous nature of the artist and printer relationship. Working with our favorite art crushes, Friends With Benefits' main goal is to bridge the productive gap between the ends of printmaking.
The idea is to produce a collection of simple and fine prints available in both zine/craft and fine art environments. These sets will be for sale and a portion of the proceeds will go to a charitable cause chosen by the contributors. The first set of prints will be letterpress printed at Typecast Press in Baltimore, MD. We want these prints to be real and not some fartsy things you're not allowed to touch!
Until the collection is printed and for sale in late July, we'll be introducing some of the Friends and sneaking a peek at their sweet contributions.
Follow us and keep up with Friends With Benefits!
