The Jaffe Center for Book Arts Studio Rental program allows authorized users to use JCBA studios and equipment for their personal creative projects. Revenue generated from studio rental will contribute toward upkeep of the studios and purchasing and maintenance of equipment and supplies. Here is a useful link to the S.E.
