Welsh Notebooks

We've been planning on printing some notebooks for a long time, and we've finally got around to printing some! We've had trouble sourcing suitable notebooks in the past, but we managed to find these recycled A6 notebooks with a screen-printable cover.

There are four Welsh notebooks available at the moment. The most popular one at the moment is our 'Llyfr Syniadau' notebook (this means 'Idea Book' in Welsh), we should be printing up an English version in the next couple of weeks. We've also printed up our version of the Caernarfon Welsh blanket pattern. the Welsh alphabet and a 'Llyfr Nodiadau' (this means 'notebook'), this one has a space for you to add your name on the cover. All of our printed notebooks have 32 blank pages inside.

We are really exited about expanding our stationery range over the next few months.

Birds Art Prints

We have just finished printing our new screen-prints on paper. This is our first attempt at printing multi-coloured prints on card. Each print has four colours and measure around 230mm square. There's a Peacock, Blue Tit and an Owl available.

We had a couple of issues with registration to start off with but managed to sort them out in the end!
Here are some photos of the printing process.

Screen Printed Compliment Slips

Just printed some more of our own compliment slips. We print these using Permaset Aqua standard white ink onto Eco Kraft paper from Paperback coop, they supply a lovely range of recycled paper.

We are getting on with some design work this week. It's difficult to find time to design as our t-shirt printing schedule is quite busy. We are working on a set of four colour screen printed bird posters at the moment, sneak preview below. We've even started designing some Christmas products!!!

Peris & Corr for Folksy

We were commissioned by Folksy at the end of last year to make a Handmade Crafters Apron. We came up with the idea of creating a print that interacted with the actual design of the apron. We made loads of drawings of various craft objects and combined them with some new and old motifs to create the finished print.

The finished apron was a full length apron with a large pocket split in to three compartments, perfect for holding all your tools and bits. We also screen-printed some 'Peris and Corr for Folksy' fabric labels especially for the aprons.

They are available to buy from here as part of the 'For Folksy' collection, alongside other commissioned goodies by other makers including Loglike.

We recently printed these lovely felt posters for Corby Tindersticks. We also printed some lovely 
t-shirts and hoodies as well. After we print them Corby Tindersticks embellish them as well, you can see the end results in their online shop.

This is the first time we have printed on felt, and we were really pleased with how the prints turned out.

New Workshop Dates

We have some new dates for textile screen-printing and lino printing workshops. The workshops will take place in our studio in October and November. We also have a special festive workshop taking place in November. Pop over to our workshops page on our site for more information and to book a place!

Recently we've been getting a lot of enquiries from customers that want to buy our fabric by the meter... So with some very helpful advice from the folks over at Ink & Spindle in Melbourne we are going to attempt to build our own fabric printing table. Will be quite a small table to start off with, probably around 3m long.....will see how it goes form there!

Above are some photos of how we are printing fabric at the moment. It involves printing one section then shifting the fabric along and aligning it very carefuly before printing the next section. It's a slow can't wait to get the printing table sorted.
