  • This is a large A1 sized print (594 x 841 mm) screen-printed by hand onto thick 270gsm Cougar Natural Paper Stock.

    Screen-printing is undoubtedly an art form. The attention to detail that goes into the screen-printing process is crucial. There are a lot of moving parts that must fit perfectly together in order to achieve the best end result.

    The image is broken down into its component colours, and each colour "layer" is then printed onto a mesh screen. This screen is like a stencil - it will allow ink to only pass through certain areas. 

    Inks are then pushed through the screens, one colour at a time, onto the paper. The final image is built by applying each colour layer until the full image forms. 

    Finally, each piece is run through a large dryer to cure the inks.

    If this sounds laborious, you're right! It is a time-intensive process which is done mostly by hand and part by machine.

    So why bother?

    The end result of screen printing is a beautifully crafted piece of art. Each print will be subtly different, and each will have a fantastic bespoke quality to them that cannot be replicated by modern printers.

    This screen printing method was used to mass produce the propaganda posters of WW2. By using this method, our prints have the same look and feel of a bygone era - we think you'll love them!
