The Archive collection of Glasgow Print Studio has been built up since the Studio was founded in 1972. It includes prints, plates, stage proofs, photographs, slides and many other items which relate to the organisation and to printmaking in the West of Scotland.

We keep a copy of every print which is published as an edition by the Studio as well as collecting examples of prints by members and visiting artists. The collection is constantly growing and includes works by artists of national and international renown.
