Today, the studio continually evolves to match new needs of its artist members.  Presse Papier is recognized internationally for its own exhibitions and is known as a reference for all artists interested in the techniques of printmaking. Presse Papier is located at 73, Saint-Antoine, Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada, G9A 2J2.  For information about the studio and its activities contact Suzanne Cloutier, Director, at 819-373-1980 or visit their website at:
