Paper Press Punch, Hocus Pocus Press, and Short Run Seattle will share studio space in the Original Rainier Bottling Plant building in Georgetown.
Paper Press Punch (“PPP”) is a community-centered Risograph print and book studio. They work with artists on print projects, teach workshops in Risograph printing, host open studio print hours for both Risograph printing and photocopying, and support an annual Master Roll Resident artist, their first being Lauren Armstrong in 2017, who presented Horror High, a new book and series of prints. In addition to community print programming, PPP has printed work for area artists, including the upcoming From Crust Till Dawn by Sarah Romano Diehl, Maroubra by Anna Vo, Hospital Drama Show by Scott Travis, and artist prints for Cable Griffith and Michael Lorefice. Their most recent publication is Board 2 Death, a zine about skateboarding. Hocus Pocus Press is also a Risograph printer and publisher of local comic artists. Their recent output includes Nighttime by Travis Rommereim, The Bargain by Lara Kaminoff, and Negligée by Marie Bouassi. Short Run Seattle, a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization, encompasses the annual Short Run Comix & Arts Festival, Summer School classes, a micro-press, the Trailer Blaze Residency, and a visiting artist program, will partner with both to bring more workshops, publishing projects, and art shows to the space.
We envision a welcoming, accessible, high-quality, experimental print and publishing collective that is open to all – let us help you make some unique books and prints! Find us at 5628 Airport Way S; Suite 175, Georgetown.
