Established in 1979 in Bloomington, Indiana, Echo Press has built a longstanding reputation for excellence and innovation as a printmaking workshop.  The concept of Echo was established primarily by Rudy Pozzatti and David Keister who sought to create a workshop that was dedicated to printing and publishing quality editions and unique works.  Over the years they built strong relationships with a network of respected artists such as Miriam and David Schapiro, Sam Gilliam, and Bob Nugent, heightening their reputation.  The contributions of such artists also led to a diverse portfolio of imagery including unique approaches to lithography, woodcut, relief printing, and intaglio.  Pozzatti writes “Whatever has been published was done with great commitment and care, using the best materials, patience, and the objective of meeting the highest of professional standards.”
