Printeresting recently posted a photo tour of the Virginia Commonwealth University Qatar Printshop. Check out the photos below for the tour. "The school has been offering various applied arts degrees for about a decade, but the Painting and Printmaking Department is a relative newbie. In addition to the usual etching presses and silkscreen vacuum tables, the shop  has a lot of digital fabrication options as well: a vinyl cutter, large-format digital printers, various laser-cutters and easy access to a 3D printer."
