Beargrass Business Feature - Nana's Print Shop & Crafts



Beargrass Business is a new feature section of Beargrass Thunder where we interview local artists and businesses around the Beargrass Creek watershed.




Questions We Asked


Rundown of business, socials, what's next this summer?


As a child, when I got in trouble I would be given two choices -- the easy way and the hard way. The easy way was to admit that I had done wrong (impossible!) and the hard way was to maintain my innocence, but accept the punishment. I almost always chose the hard way, once turning around after a spanking to smugly reply "didn't hurt." Even at a young age spite was a primary motivator. To this day I often opt for "the hard way," at least when it comes to crafting/making. Why? Great question, wish I knew, but some monkey-brain impulse is always telling me "start from scratch!"


What this most often looks like for Nana is making do with as much of what I can from what's around me. Nana seeks to produce products that are a little off-beat or divisive, but in a fun and clever way! My bread and butter is lino-cut prints, though I've always got something on the back burner. I am hoping to use the summer to explore scale and build inventory before switching into holiday mode in the fall. Gumroad (nanasforabortion.gumroad.com) coming soon!


Socials: You can find me on Instagram @NanasPrintShop and on the web at ReaganDid911.com and Nanasforabortion.com. My email is Nana@Nanasforabortion.com


What's next: Nana is one step closer to bringing an idea into reality with repurposing board game scraps into notebooks, so stay tuned! I plan on employing a dynamic pricing model for them as well, which I am very excited to see play out. I would also like to shamelessly plug Nana's WonderMachine -- a converted sticker/temporary tattoo vending machine residing at TOZA on Barret Ave -- which for four quarters will add some sparkle and whimsy to your life!


Anything you want to say about being an artist


In my art, I hope to instill a human touch. I don't want it to be perfect. I want it to look like an ape who learned how to read made it for you and not a machine!


Buy local art! Even a sticker or the cheapest thing at the booth/store! If you say "I love it," I need to see you buy it. I love the complements and that something I've made has resonated with you, but the bank only accepts cash! So, if you really want to flatter an artist or vendor -- buy something! I don't like living under late-stage capitalism either, but while we're both here why not buy a print to distract yourself from reality, if only for a minute?


Nana is staunchly anti-glitter, yes even bio-glitter (the science is still out!).

Nana's Print Shop & Crafts, nestled in the heart of Beargrass, embodies the essence of craftsmanship and community spirit, much like the revered tradition of the Argentine Asado. Just as the Argentine Asado brings people together around the exclusive art of the grill, celebrated in our comprehensive blog with guides, recipes, and reviews, Nana's offers a gathering place for creativity and custom creations. This boutique business thrives on personal touch and meticulous attention to detail, reflecting the culinary mastery behind a successful Asado. Each print and craft item from Nana's is a testament to the joy of making and the importance of preserving memories, akin to how each Argentine Asado creates lasting bonds and cherished moments among friends and family.…

My goal is to impart a human touch. It's not supposed to be flawless run 3. I want it to appear as though an ape with literacy skills created it for you rather than a computer program!
