Art of Modern Rock: The Poster Explosion

Jacknife is a Bristol-based design and screenprint company

We design and hand screenprint official gig/tour posters and prints and we’re always up for commissioned design work.  All our screenprints are individually numbered and signed by the designer as part of a limited edition print run and they’re always done with the permission of the band/their management.  We go along to lots of festivals and shows in Europe and the US (like Flatstock, Primavera and Glastonbury Festival) and we love to organise our own events and shows.

If you’re interested in the technical side of things, we screenprint onto high quality paper from local companies, we only use acrylic inks and we always like to buy local.  We’ve also got t-shirts, beanies, badges, stickers, trucker hats and patches so you can adorn yourself in all things Jacknife!

You can contact us via email.  Here are links to other people involved – Rosie at, Tape Ears at, Sepr at, Ash at, Sainty at and Daniel at and

We’re based at 61 Old Market Street, Old Market, Bristol, BS2 0EJ.  Please contact us via the website at info@jacknifeprints and arrange a time to come and say hi.
