Our primary focus remains to provide a functional printmaking and letterpress studio for the community in the region. Each year we have improved the space, expanded our skills, and acquired betters tools.  Exciting news for 2020 is we have moved to a new space accessible by walking, public transit, or vehicle.

EGPs supports itself thru membership fees, fundraising and the labour of volunteers. Membership fees cover the annual facilities costs (rent, insurance, general supplies) and are not fixed but set in January by dividing annual rent by number of members. Membership gives you 24 hr access, personal storage space, unlimited use of shared resources (etching press, small letterpress platen press, proofing press, book press, variety of metal type, oil and waterbased printing inks, screenprinting equipment and small UV lightbox, large and small rollers and and limited storage for personal supplies.  Take a digital tour of our studio.
