    For $25 dollars you will receive an original handmade fine art print that has been printed using our custom rocker press! Our printing method is totally unique! Nobody in the world makes prints like us! We will hoot and holler, ring our cowbell and use our ample body weight to crush that ink into that poor little sheet of paper! The image will be carved by either Eric Fuertes, John Medina or one of the many amazing and famous artists we work with (you will be allowed to choose the design once we have them)! Hang it in your home or office! Every time you look at this beautiful work of art, it will remind you of all the enchiladas we had to eat to create enough pressure to make your print! Orale! You will also receive reward #1.

    Five hundred dollars is a lot of money. We understand that. We would be eternally grateful to anyone who would be willing to donate this much money to our cause. In return for your generosity you get your very own wheat paste mural, installed by the mural professionals at San Anto Cultural Arts. This 8'x8' mural will consist of original art prints created using our rocker press. The prints can be arranged in a variety of ways to compliment the space. Once the composition is decided the paper prints are applied to the wall using acrylic Novagel, in a manner that is similar to applying wallpaper. Once installed you will be able to enjoy this unique mural for years to come. It would make the perfect addition to your home, office, studio, business, garage, man cave, classroom

    where ever! You choose the location and we will install a custom wheat paste mural to compliment the site. Bring a little San Anto flavor into your life! (available only in the San Antonio area)

    For $1,000 we wanted to offer something VERY special. As a token of our appreciation we will bring our rocker press and a printing crew to your private party or corporate event! Your guests will have so much fun as they pick their favorite, hand carved, design, ride our custom rocker press and create their very own print! We can even print on t-shirts if you want (*you provide the shirts)! There'll be plenty of hootin' and hollerin', not to mention cowbell ringin'! We can even bring a boom box and play some music while we interact with your guests. People love printmaking and they love riding our press! Got a quinceanera, fraternity party, birthday party, super sweet sixteen, baby shower, superbowl party, bar mitzvah or corporate event coming up? This is a great way to provide your guests with a unique experience they won't soon forget! Every time they look at the print THEY created THEMSELVES, they will be reminded of the great time they had at YOUR party! That's baller status right there all for a thousand bucks! That's "friend price" holmes! If you try to book us later the price won't be this low. Consider this an early bird special. *price includes 2 hours with our rocker press and crew. We will provide ink and paper. Keep in mind it takes about 2 minutes to create a print from start to finish, which means about 30 prints per hour (give or take). (Available only in the San Antonio area)
