About

We're a group of artists, designers, and coders trying to answer the question "What can a company be, and what should it be?" One day the answer will be "Social Print Studio." Working on it since 2010!


In The Beginning

...there was the print. Our founder Ben Lotan printed a Facebook friend poster in his San Diego dorm room for an art project, then people asked to buy their own. Soon he recruited his friends and some weirdos he met on Craigslist, and began printing anything he could find. When we first printed your Instagram photos in 2011 things really took off...


The Team




The Berkeley Chapter

In 2011 we relocated from San Diego to the Bay Area. We set up HQ in a classic Berkeley house, where 7 of us slept, cooked, cleaned, played the drums, and in our free time worked on printing! This is the birthplace of the Classic Framed Print, still one of our favorite products.

The SOMA Chapter

We currently work out of a large airy studio in San Francisco's SOMA district. We have a team of 8 full-time employees, fueled by caffeine and love of printing your dreams. We've made the jump to mobile and launched Print Studio for printing photos from both iPhone and Android.

Work in Progress

The company remains completely independent and bootstrapped, meaning we have no outside investors, and don’t owe anything to anyone beyond our dear customers. We don’t intend to ever change this. We want to grow slow and maintain an awesome and authentic company and brand.
