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

A commission from artist WIll Hutson on behalf of Rise Above Records.
The prints involved sourcing UV blacklight paint (waterbased, of course) and then working out how to use them for screenprinting.
However the end result was pretty awesome. They needed very off white paper to absorb rather than reflect the light source and the paint glows like mad under a black light. However they had absolutely no screen stability, lasted under 10 seconds between pulls and when they dried in the screen, boy did they dry in!
When we say we’re up for a challenge, we mean it, and we can now add UV black light paints next to instant coffee in our list of ‘Things You Probably Shouldn’t be Able to Screenprint With’.
