You’ve known that Spudnik Press is your friendly community printshop where you can go to take classes, learn new techniques, and print independently; but did you know that Spudnik Press has been taking on custom publishing projects for over 4 years now?
Spudnik Press can bring to life that custom printmaking project that you’ve always wished you had the time/materials/skills to make. For years, the Publishing Program has been producing tons of posters, t-shirts, cd sleeves, tote bags, and limited edition art prints from a large diversity of clients, in a variety of processes. We work with companies, designers, individual artists, musicians, theaters, etc., in order to make your unique project a reality.
Our most common media for consignment printing is screenprinting, but Spudnik Press’s expansive publishing program frequently encompasses letterpress printmaking and offset productions as well. Our shop is also equipped to produce custom relief printing projects, book-binding, and more! If you have an idea, we have a press.

ART ATTACK! Sculpture Show
Thursday, May 9th: 5-7pm
2101 S Halsted St, Chicago
This spring, Spudnik Press partnered with Citizen Schools to pair five Spudnik artists with three classrooms to lead art apprenticeships with middle school students through out the spring.
ART ATTACK! Is a Citizen Schools after school apprenticeship at Walsh Elementary. Every week, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students meet with teaching artist Liz Born to develop a language of visual identity using formal elements like color, shape, and texture. Transforming everyday materials, each student has created an emblematic sculpture in an investigation of the Artist’s decision-making process.
Citizen Schools partners with middle schools to expand the learning day for children in low-income communities across the country. By drawing thousands more citizens into schools each year, they’re promoting achievement, transforming schools, and re-imagining education in America.
Your vegetables are progressing nicely. We are looking at mid June as our first pick-up but will email one more time towards the end of May to give you the actual start date.
The farm staff is moving quickly this week since it has been “the only consecutively nice days since September” according to Todd and, according to the weather channel, bound to rain again.
All farmers in this region have had to delay their plantings due to cold, wet and just plain wet soil. We did get spinach seeded before the rain, which has germinated. Kale, chard and broccoli have been/are being transplanted this week until the rain returns.
We do a few things to make sure the crops transplant well. One thing we do is blast them with fans while they grow indoors, to condition them to the world outside. We have put a thin covering of fabric (“row cover”) over the transplants this week to protect against any surprise frosts and to hopefully discourage bunnies. Lots of transplants await indoors and they will be ready when the soil is! Todd is continuing his work on the high tunnels, digging holes for concrete to anchor them. Oh, the saga of the high tunnels!
