Automaton Prints uses water based ink which has a lower impact on the environment and what goes in our water compared to commonly used oil and plastic based printing inks.

They are launching a clothing line at a block party this Saturday, July 30th, 2016!

There will be loud music, food trucks, beer, and a skate contest, and other fun stuff to do. A portion of all merchandise sales will go to the St. Johns Riverkeeper, so you can feel good about buying yourself something cool. It's free to attend, so check it out here:
