Hague & Hague

We were recently asked to reprint these clever little perforated business cards for Manchester based design studio Hague and Hague. We screen printed them on 5 shadesof GF Smith colorplan stock.



Blue Pits Housing / Bee-ing Well Project

We have been working with the members of the Bee-ing Well group to help them to design and screen print their own range of garments and gift items which feature limited edition prints and a new logo identity. Using collage, drawing and screen printing, the group have explored the use of text, symbolism and positivity within their work.

They have produced a range of quality retail items which will go on sale locally and all money raised from the sale of the items will go directly back to the group, therefore enabling them to become self-sustainable and to continue to fund their own projects and activities.

Bee-ing Well with Blue Pits is the new name for the collaborative activities hub from Newbarn Ltd and Bluepits Housing Action Service. This weekly group is open to clients from all similar services and it offers a range of activities that promote holistic well-being.

Newbarn Ltd is a provider of bespoke social housing and supported living options, within the Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale areas. They provide creative support solutions for people with complex mental health conditions and learning disabilities, including those with a dual diagnosis.  Blue Pits Housing Action is a registered charity and registered provider of social housing. Through a preventative and enabling agenda, provide single tenancies, delivering individual support with all aspects of daily living for people with long term mental health conditions.


“Sally and her team of dedicated and engaging staff from One69A delivered a ‘Bee-ing Well’ themed screen printing project over the late Summer to our group of adults, many of whom experience mental illness and learning disabilities.  Some of our group had never drawn or painted in their lives, but Sally and her team’s warm and emphatic way of working, unlocked people’s creative imagination and self-belief, and within a short time, all were happily and confidently discussing and designing their personal affirmations.  The results were amazing, being both inspirational and humbling.”

Lynn Collins, Service Manager of Newbarn Ltd and Blue Pits Housing Action

Breakthrough UK Certificates

Northern Quarter based design agency True North asked us to screen print some certificates for Breakthrough Uk. These beautifully designed prints enable the recipient to have a virtual awards ceremony when they use the Aurasma App on their smart phone. The main design of the certificates is the same but the title had to be changed on each one meaning we had to print 8 completly individual A2 prints. A big job that has turned out looking great. Congratulations to each of the winners!!

IGNITE / Carlton J&I School

During my week at Carlton J&I we wanted to create items to sell and decorate the stall at the schools summer fete; we also want to make a large 2D elm tree to reflect the schools logo.  The overarching theme for the work as well as including the school emblem was local nature particularly as Frickley Park is nearby and has a strong connection with the school.

We used rich vibrant colours of plants, trees and flowers and looked a the work of Angie Lewin for inspiration.  We also collected leaves and practiced some drawing from observation.

We made screen printed bunting with year 3, lino and relief printed greetings cards and postcards with year 4.  Year 5/6 made two giant elm trees from screen printed fabric and year 6 screen printed tote bags and tea towels featuring the elm tree and school moto.

The school are certainly well prepared for a stall bursting at the seams with handprinted treats!

First Job of 2014

Happy New Year.  After a lovely Christmas break we are back in the studio raring to go.  The first job of the year is some business cards for Igloo Regeneration.  We have printed a few sets of business cards for Igloo in the past so this was a straight forward black water based ink on Colourplan Factory Yellow 350gsm paper.  We printed these on sheets of A3 and got them cut down at the print finishers.
