Wavelength Press is dedicated to the collaboration with contemporary artists that have a unique point of view. The studio specializes in prints that are hand-printed in limited editions, and each print is signed and numbered by the artist. Wavelength integrates modern technology and the traditional art form of letterpress printmaking which provides the environment that focuses on high quality and allows the artist freedom to articulate their work in the letterpress medium.
