We're SPS

Social Print Studio is a work in progress. It was first conceived by Benjamin Lotan as a performance art piece while he was pursuing an MFA degree. We won’t go into the full details here, but at some point he met his co-founder George Sylvain on Craigslist (true!), and together they started to get serious. The question was and still remains, "what is a company and what can a company be?"

We started printing Instagrams in 2011 and since then we've enjoyed printing millions of your favorite photos. More recently we made the jump to mobile and launched Print Studio for printing from both iPhone and Android. We also operate a creative agency and do all kinds of creative work for clients across the country.

The company remains completely independent and bootstrapped, meaning we have no outside investors, and don’t owe anything to anyone beyond our dear customers. We don’t intend to ever change this. We want to grow slow and maintain an awesome and authentic company and brand.

We've worked out of basements, college computer labs and other people's houses before moving into our own studio in San Francisco's SOMA district in 2013. In this space we also host live events, run an artist-in-residency program and have even been the set for a number of music videos with artists like Connan Mockasin, and Holychild. You can sign up for our local events list here.

If you would like to get in touch, email us Hello@sps.io, Like us on Facebook or find us on Instagram and Twitter as @socialps.

We've been featured in The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, and Fast Company. You can download our press kit here.

Hugs, and thanks forever,
