Art of Modern Rock: The Poster Explosion

Jacknife is a Bristol-based design and screenprint company located in Jamaica Street, Stokes Croft and we’ve been around for a decade now

We design and hand screenprint 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 at SXSW and Glastonbury) 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 card stock from local companies and only use acrylic inks and we always like to buy local.  We’ve also got t-shirts, bags, beanies, badges, stickers, caps, patches and miscellaneous novelties and trinkets so you can adorn yourself in all things Jacknife!

You can contact us via email and arrange a time to come by if you like.  Here are links to other people involved – Rosie at www.rosielea.bigcartel.com, Tape Ears at www.snakehands.bigcartel.com, Sepr at www.sp-sepr.com, Ash at www.ashclarke.bigcartel.com, Sainty at www.henrystleger.com and Daniel at www.darwindrawin.com and www.birdbrains.com.
