The Private Press is a modern screen printing studio, passionate about the endless possibilities of creative screen printing. We make hand-pulled, fine art and graphic art prints, with an emphasis on quality and meticulous attention to detail.
Every project is unique, and we enjoy working closely with our clients to gain the very best results. As a small business, every project is valued and it is important to us that our clients have delivered to them truly beautiful screen prints. We are proud to say work we have printed has appeared in the Design Museum, the Royal Academy and the Saatchi Gallery.
We specialise in:
– printing fine art editions, for established and emerging artists
– prints for designers and graphic design agencies, illustrators and graphic artists
– using water based inks, and more specialist inks such as fluorescent, metallics, varnishes, interference, glow inks and more
– printing onto a wide range of papers, from uncoated and matt boards, high end art papers and textured boards, to more unusual substrates such as gloss board, metallics, wood and adhesives. We can also work with diamond dust and apply gold leaf to prints.
The studio is managed and run by Gary Parselle, who has more than 10 years of screen printing experience. Before setting up the studio, Gary worked extensively in some of London's most renowned graphic design and advertising agencies where he specialised in print production, gaining in-depth knowledge of print and paper, which continues to inform the work of The Private Press. Gary looks after every stage of the print making process, from initial consultation through to mixing inks, choosing the right paper and printing everything by hand.
