Dave Buonaguidi has produced a charming, romantic and whimsical art piece in a world that sometimes can feel unromantic and heartless. It’s important to share the love and what better way than a vintage love letters and envelopes dating back to the 1950s and hand screen printed. Each letter is unique and a totally original one off item. Please do not buy a frame prior to purchasing this piece, due to the nature of the art piece the size may vary. Printed onto vintage paper and consequently the papers will show signs of wear and tear due to age.

Maxine is a contemporary artist that combines typography, photography, grid layering and nostalgic imagery to create intriguing artworks. Her hand-pulled screen prints are a unique combination of vintage motifs and futuristic compositions. Her art is often described as ‘Nostalgic Futurism’. Her CMYK printing process helps blend retro and current imagery together, creating surrealist artworks that are futuristic yet familiar.
Rose Stallard, illustrator and Creative Director of Print Club, mixes up her own drawings with found images from across the board, injecting fanzine-like enthusiasm (and discernment). Clients include The Guardian, Fiction Records, Urban Outfitters, Dazed & Confused and Glastonbury.
Gavin is a London based artist, with initial training in Fine Art at Middlesex University.
Gavin’s paintings are loose and expressive, using fluid movements and textures to create engaging and lively pieces. Often the canvas has been used previously as a palette to create marks and mix colours unconsciously, before it becomes the beginnings of a piece itself.
Gavin’s screenprints often depict colourful, nostalgic images. As a painter who takes their work into screenprinting, Gavin brings the textures, drips and strokes into his printmaking and the use of negative space keeps the pieces fresh and contemporary.
Clients include Gaytimes, Boyz, Diva, Woodmansterne, Portfolio, Kingshead, Oval House and Trafalgar Studios.
Stuart graduated from Central St Martin’s School of Art with a First Class BA Hons in Fashion Design followed by an MA in Film Production Design.
Over the years he has worked in several creative areas including Film Production and prop making, Art direction for Television, Product development and Interior design for both private and commercial spaces. He recently returned to his first love of image making and his work focuses on combining classical and modern imagery to create a new narrative showing how time marches forever forward but human fears and desires ultimately remain the same. His art is best described as a dark and subtle clash between the Iconic and the ironic.
Donk is a photographer, printmaker and street artist, working in the urban paste -up poster tradition. He has worked as commercial photographer since the mid 1990’s but in 2008 decided to create the moniker ‘Donk’ to anonymously explore a series of new personal visual ideas. Curious to unlock the d.i.y creative potential of direct dialogue with the local environment, and fascinated by the ephemeral nature of unsanctioned creativity, he set about pasting his work into the east end of London and elsewhere.
I am a flourescent ink obsessed screenprint maniac, artist and teacher. I specialise in making rough, raw, punky image making bursting with energy and loud graphics, and have worked for clients such as Crocs, Brewdog, Film4, and The Prodigy.
My Work is built up from a dense hybrid of drawings, collaged imagery and multi – layered colours. I am a big fan the offsets, drips and fades to create an authentic distressed aesthetic.
Originally from Singapore, Cassandra Yap is an artist and art director based in London. Her work often explores the juxtaposition between dark and beautiful subjects to create the surreal. Fuelled by her love of pin ups, the female form and an unhealthy obsession with vintage erotica, her photomontage halftone style images are dark, bold and humorous with a kinky edge.
Exhibitions include: Print Club Blisters Blackout ’10, Blisters The Directors Cut ’12 & Blisters Sound Sessions, 3939 Shop pop up gallery at the Shop At Bluebird, The London Illustration Fair ’13, Dalston Superstore, The Affordable Art Fair Battersea ’14, solo show at Laylow Art Gallery in Palma de Mallorca, Wall Street Gallery’s Revolution group show in LA, Affordable Art Affair Hampstead ’15 and Film 4 Summer screen print show at Somerset House.

‘Where there’s printmaking, there’ ink. Fred Higginson of Print
‘Club London is here to shout about the skill of colour mixing.
“Dont leave it to guess work. Always keep a note or take a picture
of the colours you use. As you grow as an artist, your colour palette
becomes part of your signature and its no good if you can’t mix a
colour again when you need it,” he says.
Print Club’s in-house commercial printers, Tuckshop, are fastidious
about recording formulas for every colour they create. They use
Pantone colour reference books as a starting point, but pigment loses
a little bit of vibrancy each time you mix it, so mixing to a Pantone
base and then again to the desired colour isntt the best way to come
up with new colours. “It soon became evident that we needed to
throw out the rule book and start again,” says Fred. That’s when
Print Club Ink was born.
A150 mile jaunt up the M1 to Screentec HQ in Stoke-on-Trent
‘opened up a whole new way of colour mixing, and now they’re
sharing it with the world. Print Club has used Screentec water based
eco-friendly inks for over 15 years, and Fred is a big fan: “Frankly,
Thaven’t come across a better ink, so why change?” A few days with
their colour specialists (and several all-you-can-eat Chinese buffets)
resulted in eight triple-milled pigment inks spread evenly across the
colour spectrum which now form the basis of Print Club Ink. The
idea is simple: start with the most vibrant colours as building blocks,
and develop a free colour library that anyone can use. “We’re making
it really accessible with ‘how to mis’ tutorials and a platform for
people to show off their artwork and share their newly discovered
colours,” says Fred, “We hope you’ll be as excited about this new
approach to colour mixing as we are!”

London-based artist and illustrator Lucy Mahon worked on multiple pieces in her effort to capture the exact moment of launch. Created using soft pastels and different colored papers, her final print was directly inspired by her own experience of taking the leap to pursue her art full time. She recalls, “it felt a bit like going into the unknown. It reminded me of that moment right before I submerge into water when I go swimming outside.”
Encouraging other artists and entrepreneurs to launch their own ideas into the world, she explains that, above all, it’s important to “follow the work and create the things that genuinely excite you the most.”
What was the ideation process for your limited edition print for Squarespace’s recent Launch It campaign?
I thought back to how I felt before and during making the jump to pursue my art full time. It felt a bit like going into the unknown. It reminded me of that moment right before I submerge into water when I go swimming outside.
I worked on a number of water pieces for this collection; some visualising the moment before, some during.
A printmaker with a strong focus on cyanotypes, Craig Keenan uses chemicals to create photosensitive paper and expose photographic images. Interpreting the moment of launch literally, he titled his piece “…and even if you miss…” to inspire entrepreneurs and creatives to take risks. He encourages anyone with a creative dream or business goal to “do more, plan less. But still plan a bit.”
In thinking about his own online presence, Keenan notes an intrinsic connection to his creative work: “It connects me with an audience I would otherwise not have access to and gives me a presence and context in which to be viewed.”
What do you hope viewers of this print get from it — particularly people who have just launched their own ideas online, or are ready to take the first step?
A sense of hope, or calm, or just something pretty to look at. I like for viewers to bring their own meaning to my work.
Simone Brewster, who creates large scale sculptural furniture, objet d’art, and jewellery, wanted her piece to capture “a feeling of reaching a bursting point. Once you’ve done the groundwork
and amassed a body of work, it’s time to share it. The composition became an expression of readiness. I wanted to encourage people to go for it.” Using a mixture of acrylics and indian inks on heavyweight paper, she was inspired by her own experience with launching a business, and the nerves and excitement that build as launch day approaches.
Brewster notes that she’s learned that sharing your idea with the world and letting go of perfectionism is critical to realising your own potential: “You can’t learn and adapt if the idea stays in your head. You have to test it in the real world, learn and grow through doing.”
What material(s) did you use?
I used a mixture of acrylics and indian inks on heavyweight paper.
An illustrator and pattern designer, Jacqueline Colley’s work is characterized by playful colors, bespoke typography, and themes of travel and curiosity. In setting out to capture the moment of launch, she immediately began “thinking about rockets, tin toys and science fiction comics with rockets blasting off on missions to explore space!” Creating papier-mâché shapes from repurposed cardboard and newspaper, she then hand painted them with acrylics to bring her project to life. Thinking about the audience for her art, she hopes “the optimism and courage of space travel feels as infectious to them as it does to me — feel the fear and do it anyway!”
What role does your online presence play in your creative work?
It’s central, especially with the pandemic as all real life opportunities are on hold.
Now my website’s shop and my socials are the main way for me to reach an audience old or new!
For Rose Stallard, creating a print that captured launch was all about offering inspiration and motivation for entrepreneurs and creatives as they climb closer to that pivotal moment. She explains that, “from initial drawings to the finished screen print I wanted fun, colorful artwork with a strong message of ‘you can do this!’ Using a screen printing technique, Stallard created her print to be “a playful reminder to believe in yourself.”
Stallard encourages anyone launching a creative idea to “make the work you want to make and don’t be too precious.Your work will develop and change over time. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, just get it out there.”
As a creative, what advice do you have for other artists and entrepreneurs who are just starting out?
Make the work you want to make and don’t be too precious.Your work will develop and change over time. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, just get it out there.
Start date 15th March. Please note this is not negotiable and you must be available to start then.

We pride ourselves on supporting emerging artists through our ‘Print-ern Ship’ scheme which was set up to provide recent graduates with the opportunity to produce work in our studio. Following the success of our previous Print-ern’s, we selected Charlie Gould to take part in our programme, allowing him to turn his playful illustrations into exclusive prints for Print Club London.
Please join us to celebrate our 2018 Print-ern Show, we will be showcasing the outstanding work that Charlie produced throughout his time with us, the entire selection of prints will be available to purchase on the show opening. Charlie was kindly sponsored by FespaUK throughout his time with us!
Charlie Gould is an illustrator and print-maker, specialising in poster-design.
Originally from Farnborough, Charlie decided to travel very little to attend Southampton Solent University, where he earned a First in Illustration in 2016.
Since then Charlie has been working freelance as an illustrator and designer for such clients as Courtney Barnett, Paper & Cloth Design Studio, and Kindred Agency.
Charlie’s work itself is largely a selfish mash-up of everything he loves. Ephemera, crappy films, pulp novels, and Americana, which are all drawn upon regularly to influence and inform the illustrations that he creates.

Artist based in London. I have a long-standing obsession with architecture, interiors and design objects. I am interested in non-functional structures; my drawings take existing architectural forms with the addition of fictional and playful elements. I collect visual material from an interior and design magazines combined with my personal photography; the spaces I imagine become an amalgamation of different architectural styles, drawing much inspiration from postmodernism, brutalism, and ancient architecture.
