Tugboat Printshop Studio Tour
It was a real pleasure to visit our friends at Tugboat Printshop in Pittsburgh, PA. Paul, Valerie, and a pal were hard at work on a print for an upcoming show by The Decemberists. Still, they made time for a quick studio tour.
What a block! You can see much better process photos at the Tugboat blog.
Prints on display!
Tugboat sure knows how to make a guy feel welcome. It’s the old saying: “the way to a man’s heart is his promo sticker on your printing press.” Join us after the jump for more pics!

One of the best things about Tugboat’s studio is the opportunity to see the painstakingly carved woodblocks used to print the images. Here’s a recent image from the Tugboat website, and my snapshots of some blocks used to print it.Bookmark / Share / Print
