Welcome to the studio!
Island Farm Press is a screenprinting shop located in San Diego, California.
Our studio was born from a shared love of art and the desire to serve the broader community of makers, offering flexible print services geared towards artists and DIYers. Our house-projects are focused on art printing and sustainable design.
John and I founded IFP after relocating from Chicago to San Diego in 2018. Our projects combine theory and practice -- as a visual artist I love the capacity of printmaking to create art in an affordable, accessible form. John is an art historian with a focus on American print history and culture.
Through our benefit edition project Prints By Post we've collaborated with 60 amazing contemporary artists to translate their work into limited-edition screenprinted postcards. Prints are available for $1.50 plus a suggested, honor-system donation of $10 to the International Rescue Committee to support their critical work during this global crisis.
We'd love to work with you on your next print project! For questions or just to say hi, shoot us an email at email@example.com

The original Island Farm
Island Farm was the name of my grandparents' house on the south shore of Massachusetts. My parents were married in their living room in the 70s, and my sister and I spent many childhood days there cooking with my grandmother, getting lost in the woods, and watching things slowly grow. In the spring of 2015, John and I were married on Island Farm's front porch.
It exists for us now as a state-of-mind as much as a physical place -- conjuring associations with natural beauty, traditional craftsmanship and love.
Island Farm Press pays homage to their values through a similar commitment to craft and by striving to minimize the ecological footprint of our studio. All of our goods are printed with non-toxic water-based inks, on organic, recycled, and FSC© certified materials whenever possible. We hope you will use our textile products as substitutes for their single use counterparts in the home.
