Vertallee Letterpress in east Austin, TX is seeking a diligent, hard working and detail focused person for a summer print internship. 4-6 hours a week, 4pm – 6pm to start.
You will be responsible for assisting in all aspects of production, including: mixing ink, trimming paper to press size, press wash up, packaging, shipping, occasional delivery and general studio maintenance. You will also assist in running the Heidelberg windmill press, which is our large-scale commercial press that is composed of elaborate and intricate mechanisms and requires unwavering attention and some mechanical aptitude to run well. Ideally, should this position be an all around good fit, it will turn into a paying gig in the fall.
In exchange for your time, we’ll give you unlimited use of the Challenge flatbed press, which is a hand operated, user friendly press (happy to train on this as well) that is ideal for stationery, posters, etc. You’ll also have access to our small type collection and ink and our wholesale discount on paper and plates, as well as additional after hours time to work on your own projects in the shop.
If this sounds like summer vacation to you, please email us with a resume and brief note listing qualifications and any printmaking experience.
