Print Club London is a screen printing studio and contemporary online gallery dedicated to nurturing creative talent and the craft of screen printing. Central to the values of Print Club London is to produce high quality, handmade, limited edition screen prints at an affordable price ranging from £30 – £1000, making Print Club London’s online gallery an accessible and inviting platform. Representing a diverse selection of contemporary artists, cherry-picking some of the UKs best talent ranging from street art to graphic design and illustration.
Print Club London was established in 2007 and is run by managing director Fred Higginson (Sculptor/ Illustrator M.O.L.) and director Kate Higginson. The duo work closely with iconic illustrator and creative director Rose Stallard, who brings the Print Club brand to life with her inimitable 1970s fanzine-style-artwork and edgy typography.
We have worked with clients on projects ranging from bespoke bags for Stella McCartney, Events at Soho House and live printing projects in store with Nike.
Print Club does not believe in fast, throwaway digitally produced artwork and instead creates products that are designed to last a lifetime. We encourage the idea of buying little but investing in good quality pieces. We hope our prints will become future heirlooms that are passed through the generations.
At Print Club, we believe that beautiful well-made products shouldn’t cost the earth. We are conscious of treating our environment with respect and care so that we can pass it on to the next generation. With this in mind, we have a low-waste approach in our studios. All our inks are water based and we use low chemical products in the studios where possible. All our artwork is produced by hand in our studios by the artists we work with. Most of paper is made by UK manufacture G.F.SMith who work with UK mills, reducing our need for shipping and transport.
Made in England
With a commitment to UK production, Print Club takes pride in printing our work in our east London studios. Supporting artists while also creating local employment is hugely important to Print Club and allows us to meticulously monitor the quality of our products. Working with some of the UK’s best illustrators and artists we pride ourselves in offering high end prints at an affordable price.
All our packaging is made from paper and can be recycled apart from the plastic lids and some of the tape, this is something we are still working on. Our boxes are printed with waterbased inks which allows the boxes to be recycled. Even our stickers can be recycled. We actively encourage our buyers to reuse the packaging.
Our directors Fred and Kate pride themselves in ensuring we work with a great social conscious and try to help where we can. At Print Club we care deeply about both the surrounding local community and the natural world. This year 2019 our support of charities continues and is a core part of our ethos here – to support others where we can. We work with Help Refugees as an ongoing project, supporting their relief work around the world. We also work in smaller capacities with charities such as Great Ormand Street, Mindand Macmillian. For those running smaller more local charities we offer free use of our studios and printing support on projects to assist them.
To date Print Club has raised over £100k for charity.
Print Club is committed to valuing diversity and seeks to provide all staff and members with the opportunity for employment, career and personal development on the basis of ability, qualifications and suitability for the work as well as their potential to be developed into the job. We believe that people from different backgrounds can bring fresh ideas, thinking and approaches which make the way work is undertaken more effective and efficient.
