Tugboat Printshop

Big, Bad Wolf Woodcut Print
"Tugboat Printshop is our in-house printshop & studio space located in Pittsburgh, PA. We (Paul Roden & Valerie Lueth) specialize in woodcuts and etchings but also make drawings, gardens, renovations, and dinner. We also like old movies, toe-tapping music, porch swings, coffee breaks, fixing things, and visitors (so call us if you're in the area and stop on by for a visit!) Most of our current work is collaborative and in woodblock. Our prints are 100% original drawings hand-drawn directly onto blocks of wood, hand-carved with hand tools, and hand-printed onto archival paper (directly from the woodblocks) in our in-house printshop. Quality is extremely important to us. All of our prints are printed with top-shelf, oil based inks onto fine, archival papers. If cared for properly, our prints will last many lifetimes! Though it is inevitable that there will be some variation in woodblock printing between prints, we curate only the best copies printed into our editions. Our prints are always handled carefully by expert hands. When you purchase prints from our shop, you can be sure that you will be getting the best that we have to offer."
