About the Artist and Workshop
Milestone Graphics is a professional, contract, fine printmaking studio owned and operated by Master Printer James Reed.
It was established in 1976 in San Francisco, California with the expressed purpose of providing national and regional artists of all rank and experience access to the expertise of professional printers. The studio is based on the traditional model of the atelier with a master printer working and collaborating with the artist to achieve the aesthetic goals of the artist.
The studio provides a quiet center for artists to explore traditional print media. Milestone Graphics prides itself on its ability to offer artists an open, professional atmosphere in which to develop their images.
The studio is a small shop with an emphasis on personalized collaboration and the production of limited, high quality editions. Over the years the shop has expanded from just lithography to a place where an artist can explore any or all the various print media, either singularly or in any combination of techniques.
Milestone is equipped with a Griffin lithography press with stones and plates for images up to 24”x32” There are approximately 50 stones for use ranging in size from 8” x 10” to 24” x 32”The studio also has two custom built etching presses (paper size up to 22”z30”for relief and intaglio printing.Also available in the shop are facilities for all photomechanical processes.
