About

PrintRoom is a presentation space and shop dedicated to artists’ publications based in Rotterdam. Since 2012 PrintRoom runs a risography stencil workspace where artists, designers and other interested individuals can take part in workshops or print their own projects.

In 2010 the initiative acquired a fixed address in Rotterdam (Schietbaanstraat 17), where it has become a vibrant hub for promoting and selling publications by artists, designers and small publishers from all over the globe. The PrintRoom collection comprises various material: from lusciously designed, full colour publications to small flipbooks, and photocopied zines. The space hosts talks, presentations, book launches, and workshops that explore artistic strategies of independent publishing.

  1. Hey hello,
    Since a year and a half we are making hOUTSKOOL.
    We would love to send you some copies, but how do we do that?

    Maurice

    • hi maurice,
      that would be very nice, thanks!
      from the beginning of september we’ll have a new space for PrintROOM at Schietbaanstraat 17. We’ll be busy renovating in the beginning, but soon after we could show your zine with the collection and if you like, you could do a small talk about it and hand it out to people. we have the intention to organise every month a ‘readingroom table’ event where people can talk about their new pubications, next issues or their plans.
      talk later (at the end of september, i hope ; ), best,
      karin

  3. Hello!
    I was at the opening of Printroom, very nice space and project, congratulations!
    I have this booklet I screen printed and bound and was wondering if I could bring some copies of it to be sold in your space. How does that work?
    You can have a look at it on my site:
