Print(shop) of the Week – YeeHaw Industries

The now defunct YeeHaw Industries was one of my all time favorite print studios. This duo of printers in Knoxville, Tennessee made amazing prints and posters, working entirely by hand using either hand carved blocks or hand set type. They created a wide range of work, from delightful posters honoring the greats of country music, to their stationery line, to a print (my personal favorite, which hangs over my press) which is best described as “A Printer’s Inside Joke.

YeeHaw Press produced amazing work for 16 years. More than that, they were ambassadors to the world of printing, sharing detailed information about their processes, and opening up their studio for tours on a regular basis.

While the YeeHaw print shop is now closed, you can browse through their sold work on Etsy to get a sense of the range of work they once made.
