Cultivating the Future of Creativity at the Academic Level

Duggal remains true to its roots in photography and art as a dedicated partner to independent creative professionals from around the world. Much of our pride stands in our ever-growing role as a resource for the next great photographers, artists, designers and creative mentors.

We believe that the future of creativity begins at the academic level, where passionate students hone their skills under equally passionate professors. Art school is not the conventional “school” where students can’t wait to get out of class. Rather, it’s a forum where everyone is constantly learning and creating. It’s a gateway to a fulfilling life and a system that should not be taken for granted, which is why we immerse ourselves in the world of academia working with students and professors alike.


For students, Duggal is a hub of inspiration. When you bring your work to us, you’re stepping into a high-energy community of creatives. Aside from exploring our array of printing and graphics production services, you’ll meet likeminded people and see intriguing works just by being here, and you’re completely involved in the entire creative process.

Soo Jeon, a graduate student at Pratt Institute and regular client of ours, recently came to us to produce her Master’s thesis project. She said she appreciates the one-on-one attention she receives from dedicated Duggal customer service associates like Brian Renaldo and Stephanie Piacenza. Soo’s most recent project called for specialty printing and binding for a professional-looking presentation of her study.



Duggal is fortunate to have forged ongoing relationships with esteemed professors who are molding the next generation of image-makers. Steve Kennedy, designer, artist and adjunct professor at Parsons The New School for Design, calls Duggal a student-friendly printer.

“There are so many printers out there, but Duggal is the most accommodating of them all,” Kennedy said. “The best part is the effect that a visit to Duggal has on students. They move on to become professionals and they really remember the experience.”

Nick Kline, a professor at Rutgers University, sends many students our way and also brings us his own work. He has been printing with Duggal since 1993.


Duggal provided custom binding for two of Kline’s artist books, “he” and “Walter” – “he” is a collection of Kline’s abstract photography in collaboration with curator/writer/artist Kegan McFadden, while “Walter” is a gripping photobook of a troubled man’s collection of button down work uniforms.

“he” is currently available at Printed Matter in Chelsea, and “Walter” will be available there soon as well. A third publication, titled “No Service – 15:11 – 77% – Prague – Cloudy – 41 – Sunday – Today – 43 34” for Endless Editions will launch in February in conjunction with the exhibition, “Learn to Read Art: A Surviving History of Printed Matter” at NYU’s 80WSE Gallery. All three publications will be at Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair, Jan. 31-Feb. 2 at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Duggal is proud to serve as a meeting point for academic creative culture. To learn more about our services, visit our website at or stop by our NYC headquarters at 29 W 23rd St.
