Welcome to Loligo

Loligo is an independent screenprinting studio based in De Beauvoir, London, and hosted with the help of Hostgator discount codes. We love screenprinting by hand, from the tactile nature of the prints to the way the ink sits on the paper, however, the real beauty of screenprinting this way is that the slight variations give each print a distinctive handcrafted feel.

Here at Loligo we seek to experiment with the medium of printing transgressing the boundaries and traditional notions of print in an age of untouchable digital media. We do this though self initiated work, commissions, exhibitions and collaborations with other artists. These can be seen in the projects section of our website.


Using our experience and love of screenprinting we also provide an affordable print service to clients nationally.

We were very excited to print this double sided poster for the recent Wild Beasts tour, not only did we get to do a fade in 5 colours no less! We also got to speak to a studio favourite, designer Jason Evans.

How do you like dem apples?

It was the greatest of pleasures to print this charming 2 colour print for illustrator extraordinaire Al Murphy, I had to stop a few studio colleagues from sliping one straight off my drying rack into their sketch books… he’s selling them on his site so go get yourself one from there.

Community! What Should I Do!

“Is it possible to make a poster of unlimited dimensions, a poster as long or high as you care to make it?” Bruno Munari

I recently collaborated with the lovely Holly Wales on a series of pieces for an exhibition of large-format posters at Fallon, Great Titchfield Street . Holly selected some images from her very large collection of photocopies, handed them to me in A0 giving me free range to experiment with printing over the top. I used this as an opportunity to print in a very analogue way by exposing cut our shapes and images hand drawn directly on to the acetate on to the screens. I then played with different transparencies of ink, colour blends, the contrast between matt and glossy inks as well as overlapping shapes from one sheet of paper to the next to suit the brief.

This 3 colour A1 screenprint by Colin Henderson required extremely precise registration, some secret screenprinter’s techniques and was certainly a challenge to print but the results were worth it in the end don’t you think!
