Screen printed envelopes

This is my first home screen print project. I always wanted to make my own personalised stationary to go with the illustrations I sell in my shop, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to try something new.

In the print room, I usually draw by pen or pencil on tracing paper and expose my designs to make positives. This time I’ve used drawing fluid and painted the illustrations directly onto the screen. Here are some action shots:

I'm happy with the results, it turns out this technique is a lot less precise than exposing transparencies, but I really like the more simple and chunky lines.  Scroll down to see the finished envelopes.
