Our History

about-us-block-1.jpgArt2Silkscreen has flowered from a screen printing company that was formed in 1974 in the fashion industry. Art2Silkscreen had contracts in the 70s with artists and fashion labels such as Barry Artiste, Harold Booky, Pret Porter, Miss Selfridge and Littlewoods mail order. 

In 1982, our own family fashion label was introduced and we were manufacturing our own garments and screen printing our own designs. We retained contracts with Lonsdale, Brands Hatch Motor Circuit and associated racing drivers such as James Hunt, Harry Green Umbrellas, Black and Edgington flags, Mr America (later renamed River Island), Mr President Leisurewear and many football, rugby and athletic clubs. Over 150 schools and businesses throughout London and Kent have had products supplied and printed by us.

And the business is still going strong today! Running from a fully functional shop in Kent, we use our own screen printing equipment in the print workshop.
 

Where Are We Today?

Today we are a constantly growing and evolving company who provide silk screen services and screen printing supplies to renowned artists/studios such as Jack Wills, Stone Island, Daily Mail, Warner Bros, Sarcophagus Films and many other popular designers.

We provide supplies to a wide number of schools, colleges and universities nationally and internationally, including the London College of Fashion and the University of Creative Arts. You will also find our products sold in many art supplies stores in and around the UK.

Not to mention, our international demand is increasing. We are shipping to locations such as Russia, Finland, Norway, Spain, Malaysia, Egypt and Romania. Check out our shipping policies to find out if we ship to you!

Over the years, we always welcomed work experience students from local art colleges and students who wished to pursue art textiles and had a passion for screen printing. We understand that these young people have great ideas and are in need of an opportunity to showcase these ideas with the right equipment and guidance. We remain proud of all the great work we did with the next generation of screen printers and textile artists.
