The story of Radix Media is really a tale of two print shops.

OccuCopy was founded in the Fall of 2011, one of several worker cooperatives born out of the blossoming Occupy Wall Street movement. They set up shop in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn and became a crucial resource for both the radical and surrounding communities of New York City.

But there’s another element to the story, an element that began in the Pacific Northwest. Radix Media began in Portland, Oregon in the Fall of 2010 as a one-person shop with a single offset press. They printed hundreds, if not thousands of pages for the creative and social justice communities. They also acted as a small publisher, putting out zines, posters, greeting cards and other ephemera that were designed and printed in-house. After a trek across the country in the Summer of 2012, Radix settled in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.

The two shops soon realized that they had much in common and decided that one unified print shop was better than two. After working together for about six months to combine processes, re-organize workflow and train on new equipment, OccuCopy and Radix Media merged in the Summer of 2013 to form the new Radix Media that exists today.
