Become a Gadzook!


We’re so excited to introduce the Gadzooks, the WNYBAC studio collective!

In typography, a ‘gadzook’ is the connecting piece that attaches two letters together in a ligature. Here at WNYBAC, the Gadzooks connect our studio space to our community of printmakers, book enthusiasts, members, and friends! We need your help keeping our collaborative letterpress and screenprinting spaces clean and organized, and in exchange for your hard work we’re excited to offer some exciting perks – like group outings to neighboring print shops – plus drinks, snacks, and good times with fellow Gadzooks at monthly meetups.
Want to be involved? Please fill out this form!
