Nine hours of printing with a faculty member to produce 50 three color 19×25 inch posters for the UMD faculty show in the Tweed Museum of art. I put an hour into just mixing the ink and color matching the original design.
If making prints involved the regular usage of hammers, our shops would be filled by a constant symphony of CLANK!. This is not the case, however do not suspect that the sound of a squeegee is any less sexy, satisfying, or industrious!
What I’m saying is: printers work hard.
