OPEN ACCESS

Open access screen print studio

Just £29 for an 'Open Access Day' in the studio

At Squeegee & Ink we don’t believe in expensive membership fees. So for £29 you can hire a bench/carousel for the day 9:30am-6:00pm. You can then use all of the equipment and screens/squeegees included in that price.

Here is a list of equipment which is included in the daily price... Use of squeegees, screens, screen print bench or t-shirt printing carousel, drying rack or tunnel dryer, heat press, wash out boothguillotine and spatulas. 

You are also entitled to use our consumables such as... Newsprint, registration acetate, and tapes at no extra cost.  You are welcome to use our extensive range of fabric and paper inks for a small fee, or bring your own. 

When visiting Squeegee & Ink you can PARK FOR FREE outside the studio, great if you have a cumbersome paper to carry or lots of stock to print! We also have complimentary tea and coffee facilities and lockers to keep your valuables safe. 

If you have done a workshop you are probably ready for open access.  Don't worry if you need a little bit of help or just a second opinion.  We are in the room to guide you through. We have heaps of advice and loads of design books for inspiration!

FILM POSITIVES

We print the film positives in house on our huge 112cm wide (44inch) Epson inkjet. It is set up to print onto acetate to create beautifully sharp positives.

You can have these waiting for you if you email Chessie beforehand – squeegeeandink@outlook.com (wetransfer.com is useful for large files)

We use a special RIP software to make sure our blacks print really opaque.  The film is especially made for exposing images for screen printing. You are eligible for special film positive prices when using the studio open access.

More details and prices can be found on the film positives page.

HOW DO I BOOK IN?

Purchase an OPEN ACCESS DEPOSIT and contact Chessie to arrange your date. If you could let us know whether you are using the t-shirt carousel or the flat beds we will be able to accommodate your needs quicker. We will try to be as flexible as possible however it is always good to have a couple of dates in mind. Looking forward to hearing from you!
