– We can offer free use of our studio to successful submissions to print your own work (You must be a ocnfident printer to use our studios and familiar with the process)
– If you aren’t a printer then you will need to consider the cost of producing your artwork with a printing company. Please be aware that the more colours you choose the more expensive it is to produce.You can speak with our sister company tuckshoplondon.com who will be able to provide you with a quote.
When responding to the brief, please be mindful that the main objective of the poster you create is to be hung on someones wall.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: If I have an existing piece of art, which I think suits the brief. Can I submit this?
A: The artwork for your submission should be original. If there are elements from previous projects this is fine but the submission should appear to be new as a whole.
Q: Does the “poster” need to contain text or type?
A: No, this is up to you. “Poster” is the format size paper and the term we use to describe this. You can either:
– Create artwork that is composed of an illustration or design
– Submit an entry composed entirely of a typographic design
– Mix the two!
Q: If I have several designs, can I submit more than one?
A: You can submit as many designs as you like!
Q: When the artwork is printed and signed, do we also need to put a title to it?
A: We haven’t decided on this yet. Just email us your entries and let us know your inspiration for the artwork!
Q: How much of that goes to the artist?
A: It’s a 50/50 split between the artist and Print Club London. The artist will receive 50% commission as will Print Club London
Q: What happens to prints, which remain unsold?
A: All prints are sold via Print Club London on our online gallery after the show.
Q: Do they remain the property of the artist or of London Print Club?
A: They’re owned by the artist/designer, but we retain the right to be the only seller of these prints as they are from a show we have curated.
Q: If ownership remains with the artist, can the artist resell them elsewhere – for example, through independent shops?
A: No, the prints can only be sold via Print Club London
Q: If the artist is not producing the prints themselves will Print Club be producing them?
A: The artists are responsible for the printing the work. They can use our studios for free if they know how to print! If artists are unable to print, they can ask Tuckshop our bespoke printing service. Tuckshop will offer a discount for all Blisters artists. This Year we’re sponsored by G.F Smith who are kindly supplying all the paper for the show
Q: Who owns the rights to the image?
A: Artists always own the rights to their work. However a rule of Blisters is that the work cannot be reproduced at a later date as another screen print or giclée.
Q: Can the artist/designer use the imagery for, their own products again? For example, using the imagery for t-shirts, greetings cards etc.
A: No, we ask that the image to be just for the show. This is what makes it ‘limited edition’ and this is a key part of Blisters.
