JAMcreative | In December 2014, we were honoured to work with our Northern Quarter neighbours JAMcreative, on the print for the launch of Hydes Brewery’s bar and boutique hotel, the Abel Heywood. We screen printed metallic bronze over black digital prints for invitations to the launch event and a series of three limited edition prints. JAMcreative’s stunning designs popped off the page and reflect the history of the extraordinary man that was Manchester’s own Abel Heywood. He was twice Lord Mayor of Manchester and the bell in the town hall clock is named ‘Great Abel’ after him!

William Blanchard | Better knows as ‘Wildcat Will’, artist William Blanchard came to The Print Room in June and July 2014 to prepare for his exhibition ‘When They Were Gods’ at Proud Gallery in Camden, London. We helped Will and his team produce a series of over 20 separate editions, all with a special diamond dust finish. With our facilities here at The Print Room, we could produce the large A0 prints that Will wanted for his show and with our experience of fine art editioning, were able to assist him in producing top quality works for his exhibition.

Magnetic North | For the uber exciting PLOT Garden project, The Print Room printed a series of one off signs onto ply wood, to be displayed outdoors in the garden. PLOT Garden was part of the Dig The City festival in Manchester during August 2014 and saw the launch of the world’s first ‘On Demand Garden’ by Magnetic North. The brief was to print 3 individual A1 sheets and 2 individual A0 sheets, which were varnish coated for weatherproofing and cut down into small signs to decorate PLOT Garden.
Jo Lavelle Jewellery | Manchester based craft jewellery maker Jo Lavelle came to The Print Room with some beautiful hand drawn designs that she wanted to turn into business cards and a set of poster display boards that she could use to display her work at craft fairs across the UK. Jo wasn’t fully decided which colour ways to print her designs, so of 1000 business cards we printed 500 in white on brown craft card and 500 in black on heavy white paper. And for ease of packaging and travelling around to craft fairs across the county, we also printed complimenting hard backed and rollable display boards, giving Jo a strong brand presence and an exhibition set up that can easily be transported.
Stephen James | Stephen James is a Manchester based poet and he came to The Print Room to produce a limited edition run of his new book ‘A book of poems written in and inspired by Manchester and London’. Stephen specifically wanted a white print onto grey paper and as white cannot be produced digitally, screen printing was his ideal option for the cover of the book. We worked with Stephen to build the design and took him through the process of coating and exposing screens and the process to print his two colour design. We were able to source the paper Stephen wanted from our partners Fred Aldous and our neighbours MARC The Printers printed up the pages. Together, we made a beautiful book.
