INSTRUCTOR: Alex Wieder, Technical Director

Piezography is a highly customizable black & white inkjet printmaking system that uses many shades of gray ink. It uses a special software and paper profiling technology to create prints with incredible tonal breadth and exceedingly rich detail - combining the deep blacks of a silver print and the subtle grays and highlights of a platinum print. No other printer or ink manufacturer can reach the same quality in monochrome.

With the release of Piezography Pro, there has never been a better time to dive into this system. The innovations of the software include the darkest blacks on earth, a gloss optimizer that seals and enhances the print, and the ability to create signature toned looks by blending warm and cool gray inks. The software also allows the user to work with more than double the image resolution of a normal Epson printer and gives unprecedented access to tools for calibrating their unique printer and paper combinations.

Our Technical Director, Alex Wieder, will teach you how to use this software confidently to make prints of unrivaled quality. Upon completion, you will be fully certified to use LATITUDE’s Piezography Pro printer as a DIY user. We’re one of the only community-access labs in the world to offer this!

  • Pre-print checklist (printer, files, paper, etc.)

  • Using the printmaking software, Print Tool

  • Workflow for different paper substrates

  • How to tone and split-tone your images

  • Best practices and editing for Piezography

Space is limited to 8 participants so grab your spot early! Participants have the option of using one of our workstations or bringing their own Mac laptop.
