BlackSails Alternative Prints and Cards for Pirates, Steampunks, Mermaids and Goths

BlackSails is a provider of specialised alternative prints and cards for the Pirate, Steampunk, Mermaid, Gothic and TV/Movie genres founded by husband and wife team Gareth & Jayne Clegg, September 19th 2011 - International Talk Like A Pirate Day :o)

Together we design and create quote prints and digital artwork from our home studio in Huddersfield, UK and started selling on Etsy in April 2014. We produce designs for the genres we personally love and are passionate about and are constantly adding to our portfolio from the massive backlog of ideas we have waiting. We are also happy to create or customise designs for individual requirements on request.

We are motivated by strong ethical and eco-conscious ideals and we try and keep our products and packaging as eco friendly as possible using recycled and FSC accredited paper and card stock as well as bio-degradable and compostable plastic wrap on our greetings cards.

Gareth does most of the design work having worked with IT for over twenty years and picked up a love of Photoshop and Illustrator.
Jayne cracks the whip and keeps the business ship shape and on course as well as contributing great design ideas with her love of tattoo style art, silhouettes, papercut, mixed media and fabrics.

In our spare time we are pirates and get away to the Sea as often as possible especially the Yorkshire coastal town of Whitby - a hive of activity for Pirates, Steampunks and Goths with it's beautiful ruined Abbey and it's maritime and gothic heritage being Captain Cooks home town and the setting that inspired Bram Stoker's novel Dracula.

Heavyweight, matte photo paper gives the best results and works especially well for the deep rich colours/black, however it is a personal preference and colours may look different to screen view.
