Get Ready for the BLOWOUT!

The Annual Silent Auction + Birthday Party

Help us celebrate four years of printmaking at Second State Press.

Thursday, December 11th
6-9 PM

This event is free and open to the public.

Fourth Annual Member Print Exchange is back- Over 60 of our members are hard at work creating editions for our annual Member Print Exchange. The first print from each of these editions will be auctioned off during what promises to be our biggest birthday event yet!

Support Second State Press- Start the new year off right by signing up for classes, becoming a member or renewing your membership with special offers. You can also be there for the debut of limited edition aprons and hand printed gift wrap designed by SSP members, available for purchase.

Your generous donations to SSP are tax deductible- We couldn’t do this without your support! MAKE YOUR GIFT here!

And of course, there will be plenty of birthday cake!



PECO Second Saturdays at Second State Press is our FREE public program that allows families and students to come together and learn about printmaking every second Saturday of the month from 12 – 2pm. Each workshop is family and student centered giving one-on-one opportunities to make art!

Open to the public; we kindly request you RSVP by calling 215-232-2120 or emailing info@secondstatepress.org.

Workshop Theme- Mail Art! Create your own cards and envelopes

Mail Art is a fun way to share your art with others. Using a variety of printmaking techniques, families will create cards and envelopes to take home and share. Each family will walk away with cards and envelopes of their own creation. Suitable for ages 6 & up.

Member Shop Orientations Every Second Thursday

It’s always difficult to start in a new shop and get your printing flow.  Different equipment, new people, and where the heck is the tarleton anyway?!  SSP wants to make it easier for you to get started and get printing.  Every Second Thursday, Second State Press we will hold shop orientations for members.  All are welcome to attend each month.

Join us 6-9 PM to get a tour of the shop, have your printing questions answered, and meet other members.
