Open Shop not enough time? Printshop members have 24 hour access to the printshop, and unlimited emulsion, ink, and photo chemistry use! Members also are backbone of the organization – you can choose to lower your dues and volunteer, run open shop, do administrative work etc. this organization is 100% volunteer/member run!

So How Do I Become A Member?

        The New Orleans Community Printshop is always looking for new members!

To begin:

1) Fill out an application and bring it to an open shop, or email it to: communityprintshop@gmail.com!  To download your own application click: Volunteer Application download

2) After you email your application, please come to a volunteer meeting (first wednesday of every month) and get on a schedule to volunteer for 1 month’s time (16 hours)   This is  required for all membership levels (even if you choose to pay full dues and never volunteer again) This benefit both you and the shop – everyone gets to know one another, and you get to see how we operate.

3) If your application to become a member is accepted, we will contact and get you your keys! if you are applying to be a volunteer member we will work with you to find the best job for you in our shop, register you for an orientation and/or membership training, and schedule you as a volunteer as makes sense with the membership you are applying for.
