Summer time = Printing time

So, in 2 weeks the Manhattan Graphics Center will close for the summer. From July 20 to mid September I will be able to go to the studio and work/print. It is one of the perks of being a Key-Holder/Monitor in the MGC, we can work whenever and how long you want in the studio and we don't have to pay for rental. – I really look forward to that. My job as a graphic designer is currently also pretty quiet, so I hope to go to the studio quiet a bit and enjoy the space.
I am always surprised that not a lot of Key-Holders take advantage of the opportunity to use the space more.
