PSSF is housed within the magic space of 2727, an art and education initiative, as a site-specific project we are calling P.E. Area. Print Experimentation Area is a gathering and accumulation of perspectives, a space to host sprawling collaborations and publications. Through a residency program, print room, workshops, newsletter, and occasional picnics, we hope to support open and generous ways of making and distributing publications within a community. We are open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Saturday. Please stop by if you're in the area, we'd love to see you!
In 2011 Colter Jacobsen founded the first PS Bay Area chapter, and in 2012, the studio became PS Oakland under Ian Dolton-Thornton. In 2017, Lexi Visco, Mindy Seu, Jenna Jorgensen, and Hana Cohn became the primary publishers for PS San Francisco. In 2018 the project moved into 2727 California Street and became P.E. Area. PSSF/P.E. Area is currently run by Lexi Visco and Calvin Rocchio.
