Red Delicious Press is a contemporary printmaking facility; our purpose is to provide an art center which is affordable and diverse in its offerings. Red Delicious Press includes Printmaking facilities for intaglio, screen printing, monotypes, relief, papermaking, bookmaking and photo imaging.

It is the only fine art, non-toxic print shop of its kind in the Denver/Aurora Colorado area.

At RDP we use only non-toxic and non-polluting materials and solutions. This "green" approach provides artists and students with a substantially safer and healthier environment in which to work! All of our inks clean up with soap and water. www.waterbasedinks.com

We are interested in providing educational programs for all age groups and being accessible for anyone interested in Printmaking. Gallery space is provided and visiting artists are invited to share their knowledge and their work. Working in a print shop can be a collaborative process because of the nature of sharing equipment. This is encouraged at Red Delicious Press in hopes that the love of printmaking spreads throughout the community.

The name of our press is “Red Delicious”, it was built by Peter Marcus and his students who attended the Frogman’s workshop in Vermillion, South Dakota. Elaine was in attendance and decided to purchase the press for our shop. The press was shipped to Denver and painted a candy apple red (delicious!).
