welcome to the max.ink/projectshop


The max.ink/projectshop is a creative space offering design and print services. We offer complete project solutions including identity branding and digital marketing solutions as well as hand-made publications and custom hands-on opportunities for artists and creatives interested in exploring mixed media applications of traditional print methods such as letterpress, relief, monoprint, screen printing, book arts and more. What is your project? Come make your ideas come to life at #theprojectshop

We believe art has the power to suspend time, to inspire a second glance, a lingering thought, a nod, a smile, a deep breath. We celebrate the fundamental human acts of creating, feeling, giving, sharing, and making. For these we are almost always hungry.

#theprojectshop is happy to​ have its home in SAW (Studio for Arts and Works) in Carbondale, Colorado’s coolest Creative District.

A creative space full of the tools, materials and expertise to enhance creative work, inspire collaborations and to maximize enjoyment.

CMC Aspen Campus Gallery
Open Book: The Book as Object and Image

A group exhibition at the Colorado Mountain College Aspen campus features the work of more than 30 local and other Colorado artists, using the form of the book as an inspiration or starting point. "Please handle me" by Reina Katzenberger holds messaging similar to an instructional operating manual. Often lofty or cliché messaging can still be relevant and helpful when presented in a substantial way. Heavily chained and thus grounded hopefully the messaging is considered with more gravity than a digital or transient version. Created at #theprojectshop with vintage #letterpress plates, traditional typeset #sansserif and original #screenprinted imagery.

Correspondence : art sent via post

R2 Gallery Launchpad, Carbondale Arts

Virtual Tour
View the mindblowing digital archive of the installation

Six initiating artists have each corresponded with a fellow artist since October of 2016. These correspondences were sent and received via the postal system in the tradition of Mail Art. For many of the artists this was the only means of communication between them, forcing an exploration of the intimacy of conversation through the physical exchange of letters/art works. By using the postal system they have invited an unknown variable that has left markings, possible delays or losses, and included the postal workers as audience members. In this day and age of fast-paced digital communication these artists did their best to honor the tradition of Mail Art. More Info
