We've decided to switch to Tumblr to keep an ongoing record of jobs we've done, events and things we're up to at GET A GRIP.
For an archive of work over 2010 and back when we started in 2009, check out our OLD BLOG

Tote bags for The Brothers McLeod
100% water based ink on 100% organic cotton, climate neutral totes we printed at the start of the week for The Brothers McLeod. This is for their 365 project-1 second of animation for every day of 2013. Wow! They’re currently in Annecy for 365’s French adventure, which incidentally is one of my favourite places-it’s beautiful, you can see the mountains and there’s a massive lake. Oh and of course amazing French food and drink…
I really like what they do; witty chaps who can illustrate, and animate…there simply aren’t enough of those around!
Another brilliant illustration from Sandra Dieckmann here, ‘Ghosts’ tote printed with 100% water based inks. I really love Sandra’s work, so I’ve also sneaked in a few pics of another design we printed a while back, as I think the bison deserves to be flaunted…
Awesome print by mr the beef from Brothers of the Stripe for Pick Me Up Festival. (Their very first exhibition was at Get A Grip…) 100% water based inks on coated paper gives it a really good texture. According to mr the beef Carbon was the theme, so we should probably wait to blog about it until Carbon Reduction Day or something, but we’ve waited long enough and it’s too good to keep hidden away-so here it is!
100% formaldehyde-free GOTS water based discharge print for the band Cantaloop. Our discharge inks mean that we can get great colours on 100% cotton garments, pretty much regardless of the colour and are super soft after the first wash. Run your hands over the print and you can barely feel that they’re there.
'Ironman' 100% waterbased ink on 100% recycled black card for MrMillerchip, who incidentally was Get A Grip's first ever customer back in 2009. The photos don't quite do it justice, but it was a lovely illustration to work on and the print is super white!
Printed on 100% organic cotton tees using silver 100% water based inks! Being cyclists, Sam and I are always pretty happy to see a bike-related job come in. This one was for a bike polo team called The Break Up. Results say they’re pretty good.
Hand screen printed by Sam using 100% water based inks on silkweave paper for Tabitha Wainwright. I’m not much of a sailor, but I reckon these prints are still pretty special. They make me slightly reminiscent of a childhood reciting the shipping news along to Radio 4 with my sister…(we grew up in the countryside).
These fine 2-colour B2 prints were hand-pulled by Sam using 100% waterbased inks for The Affair.
If you haven’t already come across the folk at The Affair, I suggest you give them a few moments of your time (if, like me, you’re into your books that is). Tees and art prints inspired by your favourite books. Lovely.
