Welcome to Paint Can Press!

The long-awaited first edition of our monthly e-zine––dubbed the Paint Can Press as an allusion to our building's mural––is finally here!

Since doors opened in November, things in the shop have been moving a mile-a-minute: new inventory left and right, social media antics and updates, and community collabs + sponsorships are just a few of the things we've been up to alongside chatting you up at checkout.

As always, we look forward to welcoming you in-shop soon!
