—More about ASPCO—
ASPCO is Austin’s only cooperative studio for screen printing. The studio provides a space and equipment for artists to create original works ranging from posters to fine art prints, t-shirts and textiles. ASPCO is an affordable solution for screen printing artists and gives them a place to collaborate and learn from others.

ASPCO began with an idea in the summer of 2009. Founder James Tootle is a graphic designer who wanted a place where he could design and print original t-shirts as a hobby. James posted an ad on Craigslist to see if anyone in Austin was interested in sharing the cost of some basic screen printing equipment. The response was terrific and the idea quickly grew into the formation of an official non-profit cooperative registered with the State of Texas. After almost a year of planning, and with invaluable assistance from Texas C-Bar and the Pump Project, ASPCO opened its doors in July 2010 with 12 members.

Since its founding, ASPCO has grown from 12 to 35 members who each use the studio to produce their own original works. ASPCO also hosts workshops to teach the screen printing process and participates in the East Austin Studio Tour each year. Our new 1700 sq. ft. studio at 507 Calles provides a bright and modern space for our member artists to be inspired and produce their art.
