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
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.
