Screen Printing

Just incase you didn't already know we screen-print everything at Frinton Press.

Yep, that's right, it a laborious method involving specially created silk screens, hands, back ache and time. We do not mass manufactured anything and each item is a limited edition, which guarantees that the product is a quality artwork as well as being a functional product, like wrapping paper, that you can use.

Silk screen printing was first adopted by graphic artists in the 1930’s and popularised by Pop artists such as Andy Warhol in the 1960’s. A screen is used to print onto a porous surface, in our case mostly paper. Each colour must be individually drawn and requires a separate screen to be made.

It a long and arduous process but the results are nicer than any other type of printing (in our opinion) and that's why we think you'll like our products even more once you see them in the real.
