“Occuprint emerged when The Occupied Wall Street Journal asked us to guest curate an issue dedicated to the poster art of the global Occupy movement. The Occuprint website is meant to connect people with this work, and provide a base of support for print-related media within the #Occupy movement.

“Occuprint showcases posters from the worldwide Occupy movement, all of which are part of the creative commons, and available to be downloaded for noncommercial use, though we ask that artists be given attribution for their work. Our Print Lab is collaboration with the Occupy Wall Street Screen Printing Guild. The OWS Screen Printing Guild is an official working group within the OWS General Assembly. It is an open working group that regularly incorporates new members into its process and can be contacted at owsscreenguild(at)gmail(dot)com.

“We look forward to creating and distributing more printed matter by supporting the development of screen-printing labs at other locations worldwide, and by printing more of the wonderful posters that we are receiving.”                                                                                                                                                 —Occuprint
The silkscreen portfolio has thirty-one 12” x 18” hand silk-screened artists’ prints on French paper in an archival silk-screened presentation folder. This project was designed and curated by Occuprint organizer, Jesse Goldstein, various Occuprint editorial committee members (including Molly Fair, Josh MacPhee, and John Boy) and Booklyn's Directing Curator Marshall Weber.

Funds raised from the Occuprint portfolio continue to support social justice community projects. Notably in 2012 Occuprint funds paid for the publishing of 40,000 Occupy Sandy Resource Guides that supplied victims of Hurricane Sandy much needed information on post-hurricane survival and health protocols. The guide was distributed by both FEMA and the Red Cross.
