This is the first series of prints we have printed ourselves from start
to finish. From buying all the equipment to release, it's been about four
months of learning, printing and swearing every night as we pull prints
in our down time. If you make a mistake whilst stenciling, it's pretty
easy to try again soon after but if something goes wrong with a screen,
you have to strip everything off, recoat it and the whole process just
takes a lot of time and energy. But now...NOW! Now we're happy with our
process, we are a lot quicker and we're proud of our results.
This print series plays around with the idea of dictionary definitions and depending on how well it goes down, I've plenty more words I'd love to give a go in this series! Anyway, all prints are signed and numbered, along with the hand embossed seal of approval, which reads 'a nice bit of paper by pahnl'.
These prints are currently available for purchase in the store.
