While printmaking can be pretty expensive in the US, printmaking studios likewise range from garages to very high end complexes. Below are some photos we managed to get from a few Southwest print studios:

Tamarind Institute is a world class lithography studio located in Albuquerque, and is affiliated with the University of New Mexico.
Takach Press makes high end printing presses, and sells printmaking supplies. It is not a printmaking studio, but is conveniently located in Albuquerque.
We are showing the Ambos Lados International Print Exchange at SGCI North Texas in March, 2019. We should get a better venue than we did in Portland.
INTERNATIONAL PRINT EXHIBITION
Currently Remarque Print Workshop in Albuquerque is also going International -- they have their 6th Annual International Juried Print Exhibition on display right now, through January 2019. Below are a few of the prints:

I believe printmaking is a little more out of reach in the US. Printing presses are not cheap, and most people do not have a printmaking set up in their house. A lot of printmakers use the facilities at the local community college. Remarque Print Workshop in Albuquerque charges a monthly fee to use their facilities, but not all cities have a public print shop to work in. Print publishers, like Landfall Press in Santa Fe must be prohibitively expensive.
And interesting response to this are university associated print studios. At UNM in Albuquerque, we have Tamarind Institute, as noted above. However the Tandem Press is affiliated with the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and Graphicstudio (Institute of Research in Art) is affiliated with the University of South Florida.
