MAKE GOOD is an independently run design and print studio established in 2010, and based in South London. We specialise in water-based screenprinting which we execute with care and attention. Our prints are lovingly hand-pulled and our editions are limited rather than mass produced.
WE USE environmentally friendly, ethical materials, and we’re involved in our print processes from start to finish. We pride ourselves on delivering high quality, unique prints for art, apparel and home-wear.
OUR time is split between designing and producing our own products, and providing an affordable print service to anyone who needs our help.
We specialise in water-based screenprinting which we execute with care and attention. We print short to medium print runs and our prints are pulled by hand. We are dedicated to achieving the best possible results and being a small studio we are proud to offer a personal service to anyone who needs our help or advice.
We print using environmentally friendly, water based inks in both our fabric and paper based projects. Predominantly we print with Permaset inks which are free of harmful solvents and chemicals. We can offer a variety of print finishes including high-gloss, metallic and glow-in-the-dark. Our colour matching is done manually using Pantone references.
Our screenprinting service covers both fabric and paper based printing. We can print posters, business cards, T-Shirts, record sleeves, tote bags, lengths of fabric, wooden signage, wedding invitations, book covers and cardboard packaging. In fact, if it’s a flat surface we’ll be happy to try printing on it.
We get our satisfaction from seeing a job through from start to finish and we’re involved in the process at every stage. We pride ourselves on offering a flexible and bespoke service and we always do our best to accomodate our clients needs. If you have a job, no matter how wierd or wonderful we’ll help out if we can!
Preparing artwork files for screenprintng can be a tricky process, and if not done correctly can result in poor final results. If you require help with the colour separation and artwork prep we can offer an artworking service. We usually find this is most successful and quickest way to achieve the best prints.
We have a saddle stiching machine and a guillotine so we can offer a basic finishing service should you need it. This means we can make custom notepads / books with printed covers – one of our favourite things to do!
If you’re a printer yourself and need somewhere to prepare your screens we can expose them for you! We can print your positives or use positives supplied to us (film only). Our maximum exposure area is A1 and costs are £25 with artwork or £35 without.
Every print job is different and costs vary with each parameter. To make things easier we’ve devised a simple quotation form to help estimate the cost of your print job. Complete the form below to get an instant quote.
