Arsenal Handicraft goods are made by the husband and wife team of Dennis and Christina Jacobs.
We work out of our small home studio where we agonize over every tiny detail, illustrating and screen printing each piece from beginning to end.
We don’t use big, expensive machinery, and nothing in our creative process is automated. You ‘ll own a truly one of a kind object made by our own 4 hands.
Because we use a simple, non-automated press, we can print on almost anything: antique sheet music, a sun yellowed envelope, or salvaged wood from an abandoned staircase.
We mix our ink colors in small batches so we can experiment with unusual pigments. Our glow in the dark prints can light up your walls for hours.
We take pride in signing, number and stamp each piece one by one so that years from now, no one will ever question its authenticity.
While our hand mixed inks and locally produced paper stock makes our work unique, we hope that we become known most of all for the stories our work tells.
