Vahid Pourkay and his brothers Navid and Hamid, owners of Print Icon, have been practicing their passion for artisan printing for over 30 years, determined to preserve the art of authentic print processes throughout the digital revolution. For Vahid and his team of graphic designers, making the leap into a new concept– marrying artisan printing, art and design-inspired décor items– is the realization of a lifelong dream.
Print Icon’s heritage print services have expanded to include on-site gilding in any color or metal effect. All stationery pieces, from business cards to wedding invitations, may be designed, gilded and printed on-site through Print Icon’s team of talented graphic designers and artisan printing techniques at both locations.
At the new boutique-gallery location, exhibits of revolving artists are featured together with Print Icon’s creative offerings. Print Icon will debut its first exhibit, “Welcome to my Eyes,” introducing the work of renowned Iranian writer, poet and satirist Parviz Shapour, on Feb. 25.
Lovers of art, design and life’s gilded details are invited to visit Print Icon at its new location on 125 West 21st Street, between 6th and 7th Avenues, or online at www.printicon.com
