Letterpress & Prototyping Lab

UCO Design's Letterpress & Prototyping Lab is located at 1020 Waterwood Parkway in Edmond. It features 3 letterpress machines, a 3D printer, a vinyl cutter, Silhouette CAMEO® 3 and a laser engraver. The academic vision for the Letterpress & Prototyping Lab is closely tied to the Vision of the Department of Design. As we project ourselves forward we see ourselves and the Letterpress & Prototyping Lab as one part of a much larger puzzle; we are national experts on design pedagogy and practice. We are seamlessly blending new technology with historical techniques to create work that clearly separates us from other universities in the country in terms of innovation, exploration, technology and quality. We are building a program of national importance in design, industry and the academic world.
