We are still offering Saturday Main Studio Open Hours from 1-6 PM. Call ahead starting at noon on Saturdays to see if there’s room for you to stop by – 503-827-0249. This is for the Main Studio only – computers, copiers, work tables, staplers, etc. Appointments are still required for the risograph, letterpress, and screenprinting studios.

Members are required to answer the following state-determined questions when requesting an appointment:

  1. Have you travelled out of state in the past 14 days?
    If yes, has it been 14 or more days since receiving a final COVID-19 vaccine?
  2. Have you had a new or worsening cough?
  3. Have you had a fever?
  4. Have you had shortness of breath?
  5. Have you been in close contact with anyone with these symptoms or anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
    If yes, has it been 14 or more days since receiving a final COVID-19 vaccine?

By requesting and appointment, you also agree to:

  1.  wear a close-fitting mask over your mouth and nose while working in the studio
  2. cancel or reschedule your appointment in the event that you experience any new symptoms, are exposed to someone who is COVID-19 positive, or test positive for COVID-19 before your appointment.

Each work station is positioned more than 6-feet apart, and equipped with hand sanitizers and disinfectant wipes. We ask members to wear their own masks, but we have disposable masks and gloves available if necessary.

Please make sure your membership is current before booking an appointment. Email eao@iprc.org for any questions about membership. Everything the IPRC does is on a sliding scale, no one is turned away for lack of funds.
