Not sure if it’s us or the season, but there seems to be a lot of new, exciting stuff popping up in Baltimore lately. And sure, we’ve helped spread the word on W.C. Harlan and Baltimore Threadquarters—but that’s easy. Who’s not interested in the city’s new speakeasy? And with Baltimore’s diverse and (pardon the pun) tightly knit crafting community, Baltimore Threadquarters hardly needs our help. But what if you’re a new small business that’s a little more niche-market? What if you’re providing a super-high-quality service that’s really hard to get locally, but isn’t necessarily on everyone’s priority list? Well, pardon us if today’s Catch screams “geek alert!” but we’d be remiss if we didn’t let as many local artists, gallery-types, and anyone else who has need of printed materials know about the newly opened Color Wheel Digital Printing.
Owned and operated by local artist Liz Donadio, Color Wheel is a small operation capable of making very large prints. Color Wheel offers high quality printing on a variety of materials—everything from simple archival papers to bamboo, to vinyl. It seems as though this place can literally print anything on anything, and do so really, really well. The studio also offers image retouching services and fine art reproductions (attention professional art thieves: just have Donadio make a copy and return the original to its museum—the buyer will never know the difference). But in all seriousness, Color Wheel’s mission of individualized, artist-driven print services that deal with clients on a personal level is one we’re grateful for. And one we bet the local art community will be taking full advantage of now that it’s here.
