As a print production centre, SNAP is unique in Alberta, and exceptional in Canada.

SNAP’s Printshop provides print-artists with the ability to produce work in a professional, and safe environment. SNAP’s Printshop features facilities in intaglio, offset lithography, relief, silkscreen, a darkroom for photographers and the only publicly accessible letterpress in Northern Alberta. In 2015 SNAP received a grant from the Edmonton Community Foundation to fund a Digital Lab for the purpose to support and assist artists in the research and production of fine art prints.

Venting and special drainage systems in the Printshop allow artists to work safely throughout the creation process. SNAP’s Printshop enables printmakers working in a wide range of media to continue their artistic endeavours.

Rental Privileges to the Printshop are only granted to members of SNAP. Learn more about becoming a member.
