Accessibility

Parking

Our shared parking lot has one dedicated handicap parking space. If this space is unavailable or any additional assistance is needed, please call 312-563-0302.

Building Entrance

Use the call box to gain entry to our building. For any additional assistance with the main door, please call 312-563-0302. Just inside the entrance to our building, there is a short ramp installed over a single stair. All doors have either handles or levers but no automatic openers. Our studio is on the third floor, accessible by a large elevator. The main hallway will lead to the elevator and stairs.

Our Studio

The majority of our studio is wheelchair accessible, however there is one step at the entrance of our washout booth for screenprinting. Some of our equipment lives in tight quarters and our sinks and certain presses sit at 3′ or higher. Many printing presses and other equipment that printmakers rely on have not been designed with accessibility in mind. In cases where our printing presses and equipment is not user-friendly to those with physical limitations, our staff is able to provide additional assistance as needed.

Please e-mail us for more specific information regarding the limitations of our space.

Restrooms

There are two single-occupancy, gender-neutral bathrooms down the hall from our studio, equipped with grip bars and one single-occupancy, gender-neutral bathroom in our studio (which has one step).

Chemical Sensitivities

The studio houses a number of different products used on a regular basis that discharge vapors/scents, including mineral spirits, alcohol, spray cleansers, and inks, which may be harmful for people with chemical sensitivities.

Additional Accommodations

Upon request, Spudnik Press Cooperative will provide additional accommodations such as large-print materials and sign language interpretation. Our staff is also happy to answer any other questions you have about the accessibility of our space, or accommodations we can make for you.
