Art of Modern Rock: The Poster Explosion

Jacknife is a Bristol-based design and screenprint company

We design and hand screenprint gig/tour posters and prints and we like to do 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 card stock from local companies, we only use acrylic inks and we always like to buy local.  We’ve also got t-shirts, beanies, badges, stickers, 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 www.rosielea.bigcartel.com, Tape Ears at www.snakehands.bigcartel.com, Sepr at www.sp-sepr.com, Ash at www.ashdawnclarke.bigcartel.com, Sainty at www.henrystleger.com and Daniel at www.darwindrawin.com and www.birdbrains.com.

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

We’re currently running screenprinting classes each month so come along and learn some new skills.
