About Us


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


What We Do

Intellectual Property Prints publishes works on paper by thought provoking artists in the form of limited-edition handmade screen prints.

About Our Printing Process

Each screen print published by Intellectual Property Prints is hand-pulled by master printer Ryan McIntosh in our downtown Los Angeles studio, using only the finest inks and 100% archival cotton rag paper. This guarantees our screen prints’ longevity and retention of value over time. After our master printer ensures that every piece in the edition is of museum-grade quality, they are individually signed and numbered by the artist as well as embossed with our official seal of authentication by Intellectual Property Prints.

Our Unique Development Sequence

We work one-on-one and face-to-face with each artist to create a limited edition screen print utilizing various hand-made analog techniques including ink, paint, markers, stencils and whatever process the artist desires for making a unique work of art. We do NOT make reproductions of pre-existing artwork and unless requested by the artist, we rarely use computers in the creation of our prints.

How We Got Started

Best friends, Ryan McIntosh and Daniel Rolnik, founded Intellectual Property Prints in 2013 after two years of solid planning. Their personalities make for a perfect blend of introspection and exuberance, with Ryan being the introverted master printer and Daniel being the extroverted curator.

Ryan McIntosh received his MFA in printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011. Shortly after graduation, he moved to Los Angeles, where he confidentially executed screen prints for the city’s leading publishers. He’s also a fine artist and exhibits his work regularly around the world.

Daniel Rolnik switched paths from becoming an engineer to a professional art critic after starting a magazine named PRESS in college. He’s now known as The World’s Most Adorable Art Critic and has written for more art publications (such as ArtSlant, Beautiful/Decay, Hi Fructose, LA Weekly, etc.) than any other arts writer in history. He is currently studying the effects of transference between artists and those that view their art.

Certificate of Authentication

All of our screen prints include a Certificate of Authentication issued by Intellectual Property Prints with the artist’s name, title of screen print, size, medium, publishing date, and edition number information on it.

Purchasing

Intellectual Property Prints processes all online purchases via a safe and secure Stripe Checkout on the Big Cartel platform. Our screen prints are available exclusively on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Shipping

Our screen prints are shipped via USPS Priority Mail approximately three days following your order. Tracking information is provided by email for domestic orders only, as USPS does not provide tracking for international shipments. If you have a special request, please email us at info@intellectualpropertyprints.com.”

Packaging

We package our screen prints flat, between several layers of corrugated cardboard. This protects the screen prints from damages that may occur during transit. Because of the thickness of the paper we use for our prints, we prefer not to ship prints rolled unless it's over 30" wide.

Returns

We accept returns of prints damaged during the shipping process in exchange for a replacement print only. Relevant cases must be reported within 24 hours of delivery. Once your email is received, we will provide you with further instructions on how to return the damaged print and receive a replacement. The buyer is responsible for return shipping. We will only offer a refund if no more prints are available in the edition.

Pricing

Intellectual Property Prints’ pricing reflects the current value of artists’ work in the contemporary art market. Each screen print is meant to be affordable when compared to the price of an original work by the artist.

COMMON QUESTIONS


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


What is a screen print?

Please watch our VIDEO ANSWER [coming soon...] to this question. Screen-printing is a complicated process that is most easily described using visual examples.

Will you reserve a screen print for me?

We cannot reserve prints. All of our screen prints are exclusively available on a first-come, first-serve basis. We suggest you sign up for our mailing list, where you will be alerted before one of our editions becomes available for purchase online.

How do you choose what artists to publish screen prints by?

We carefully select artists to work with based on 3 factors: longevity in the arts, commitment to excellence, and dedication to progression of practice and thought.

Are you accepting submissions?

Currently, we are not accepting unsolicited submissions.

Why doesn’t my screen print look exactly like the one in the image online?

Due to the nature of viewing screen prints online and the hand-made screen-printing process, slight variations in color are to be expected. We suggest you turn up the brightness on your monitor to full, in order to view a better representation of how the screen print will look in person. We also suggest that you sign up for our mailing list because we frequently bring our screen prints to live events, where you can see them firsthand.

Do you offer framing or framed screen prints?

We do not offer custom framing at Intellectual Property Prints. However, if you are in the Los Angeles area, we recommend using Joseph Florence of Art Mechanics. He has the dimensions of all our screen prints and will be able to help you with his superb expertise.

If you are not in Los Angeles and unafraid of DIY projects, we recommend ordering framing parts through American Frame - we have included a CHART [coming soon...] of all our suggested frame and matte sizes to help your endeavor and suggest you view our VIDEO GUIDE TO FRAMING SCREEN PRINTS [coming soon...] before partaking on this adventure to ensure you perform the task correctly. As we do not refund screen prints damaged during the framing process.
