Printed TWINS

twins_printed_armstwins_printed_legsYesterday was quite a sad day… as for the last time I was at Kapitaal in Utrecht for printing some ET artwork… hopefully they will find a new place soon so our collaboration can continue…

What had to be done yesterday was the sleeve for the TWINS “Rather Not” record… the sleeve has a classic new wave sort of lay-out and features some great photography by Anouk van der Wegen. The sleeves are silkscreen printed.

This record comes in two editions… as in that the sleeve has been designed in two variations featuring two different photos… one proved harder to print as the other strange enough… but in the end both look great I think…

This record is open for pre-order now and ready for shipping in about 2-3 weeks from now…

 

Printing time (again)

This weekend I was again at Kapitaal in Utrecht printing the artwork for the upcoming releases… I finished two of the three sleeves I need to do…

antlersmulm_cvr_uncutFirst I printed the Antlers Mulm 7 inch sleeve… this one was a three color / layer design for risograph… the funny thing with doing riso prints is that  all copies are different… as you print layer for layer and the paper feed is not very stable you can imagine little differences in each print… as in that the layers are never super thigh on top of each other… but that is all part of the charm… and the colours of course… they look so old fashioned… absolutely lovely! I printed on a yellowish bookstyle kind of paper… adding even more charm to the final result…

zarkoffikonal_cvr_printedThe other print I did this weekend was for the Zarkoff & Ikonal 12″ EP on Gooiland Elektro… this was the usual silkscreen printing job I do since several records in this series… so cardboard sleeves and double sided printed… which is quite a lot of work… but they look really good I think… rather industrial…

Next weekend I return to Kapitaal for the last time to print there… at least at the current location… they are currently looking for a new place and plan to re-open soon at a new location… but I will print the TWINS mini album artwork at the current place… this will be a silkscreen printed sleeve in two different editions… same style but with different photography… so 125 copies with one design and 125 copies with another design… I look forward to printing this one… very curious how these will turn out…
