Sideshow Design's Profile

About

What's it all about? ...Well from our small artists studio in the Hertfordshire countryside we hand-pull each screen print to create our unique limited edition artwork. The process is overseen by a gaggle of gorgeous hens who strut and fret their hours outside the door.

The paper for our screen prints is hand-made archival cotton paper produced at the Two Rivers paper mill in Taunton. It is the last remaining water-powered paper mill in England and produces (in our opinion) the best mould made paper there is!

The designs all emanate from a little office at the bottom of the garden where the dogs, Jamie and Scamp, snooze, chew and wag their way through the day – alternately motivating us to keep smiling or barking at us to take a break and come and play 'tug of war'!

We are 100% BRITISH designed, sourced and made!

ENVIRONMENTALS... Our packaging is 100% recycled and fully recyclable. Our screen print paper is at least 95% recycled (apparently it has to have some new cotton in it otherwise it won't work!), our inks are either 100% recycled or sourced as surplus supplies and waste from commercial printers. Gilcee cotton paper and our frames are all sourced from FSC regulated suppliers and hand made in the UK.

A UNIQUE PRODUCT... All our work is produced by hand and all the inks are mixed by hand. This means that slight variations will always occur from print to print. Although we guarantee absolutely the quality of our prints, we love these little variations and nuances because it means each and every print is absolutely... UNIQUE!

Everything we do has emerged from a lifetime of theatrical jiggery pokery, circus swinging nonsense and good old fashioned sideshow entertainments! We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy creating it.
