Mantra Lounge
312 E Girard

“Living for the weekend” seems like it has become the mantra of our culture. Just make it through the workweek so that we can party hard on the weekend. Filling up our time with diversions, we want to enjoy as much as we can before we have to return to the grind of work. To do this, we entice our mind and senses with anything that will grab their attention. But is there more to life then just jumping from gratifying one sense to another in a never ending rollercoaster? Come hear about how to develop a more lasting happiness with Devamrita Swami.

6-8 PM

Yo Philly- join us for our 20 Year Annivesary/Grand Opening Party! Since I coined the term “Devilfish Ink” back in 1997, we have called 9 different Fishtown locations the Devilfish’s Den. Rebuilding so many times thwarted us from having a proper Grand Opening. 2017 marks our 20 Year Anniversary, and the only thing better than celebrating our first giant leap is to bask in achieving the massive accomplishment of
producing quality work for our client for 2 decades!

As a thank you, I invite you to join us JUNE 24, 2017 for our Open Studio Tour & Print Party! The doors of the studio, housed in the historic hay loft of Weisbrod & Hess Brewing Co built in 1885, now a portion of the Philadelphia Brewing Co. complex, are sprung open for the public to marvel at the 25ft vaulted ceilings and the crews’ custom creations. Visitors will be able learn more about the various printing processes they offer, and even print their own souvenir tee shirts, buttons and postcards! Local PBC Craft Beers and Rowhouse Spirits featuring Devilfish Ink artwork will be served to those of age as well as light food and musical guests will provide an eclectic sound track to the celebration.

During the entire month of June, in conjunction with the 20 year anniversary and the new print-on-demand services that are being added to ourcurrent screen print services, Devilfish Ink is offering discounted print packages: 250 Full Color Business Cards, 100 Full Color Post Cards/100 1.5” Buttons, or 50 Full Color Posters all for $19.97 each!
