About Reinis Gailitis Printmaking


Thank you for taking a look at my Patreon page!

My name is Reinis. I am a printmaker specializing in hand-engraved printmaking techniques: wood engraving, copper engraving and the combination of both. These are some of the oldest and most difficult printmaking techniques. With the development of digital printing processes, traditional printmaking techniques nowadays have lost their practical purpose. But I still believe, that even in this day and age we can learn a lot from these techniques. They have something, that digital print processes can't achieve yet and I will try to do my best, to show it to You. Their technical fidelity far surpasses anything that can be achieved by modern printers. My goal is to make other people as passionate about these techniques as I am. To reveal their beauty to a wider audience of people.

But let's get to the point, why have I chosen Patreon? Patreon is a platform for supporting Your favourite artists and content makers by pledging a small amount of money. The power of this tool is that a small contribution by many people can make a big difference in artists creative process. As much as I would like to be a full-time artist, it's not possible at this point in my life, but I believe that everything is possible with hard work and putting in a lot of effort. 

How will I use your contribution? Patron pledges are used for purchasing printmaking materials: ink, paper, engraving tools. Oftentimes money from Patrons is used for application fees for printmaking exhibitions and contests. Contributions are also used for shipping and other printmaking related expenses. During these years, by the support of Patrons, I have purchased an intaglio printmaking press, which has been named Preston by a Patron: "How about "Preston"? Because it is a press and can probably exert the force of a ton.".

What do You get in return? First of all, my endless gratitude. Patrons receive everything that I am working on: original prints, books and there have even been craft beer with my labels! By being my Patreon, you will also unlock Creators posts where I am regularly updating the things that I am working on, photos from the printmaking process, articles on my professional life, etc. Patrons receive mentions and shout outs on all of my social media posts, as well as their name on my Website Patron section.

Feel free to browse the public Patreon posts to get a feeling of this page.
You can see my website for my print Portfolio.
