STUDIO

Welcome to Bicep Press.
We are a fine art print studio based in central Bristol, UK, lead by Jonny Akers.

Jonny has been screen printing for 14 years, with much of his career spent working on creative projects with a variety of clients. Having developed his solo career as a screen printer and maker, Jonny introduced the brand Bicep Press in 2019.

Focussing on fine and contemporary art work, Bicep Press has quickly grown in size and reputation, and we’ve now had the opportunity and privilege to work with a vast array of both UK and international artists.

Split over two sites in Bristol, Bicep Press provide screen printing and high-quality giclée digital printing services, where every project is crafted in collaboration from start to finish with Jonny and the Bicep team. We specialise in perfection, technicality and pushing the boundaries of printmaking and are happy to discuss any size or specification of fine art project.

Inks & Finishes
We specialise in hand-pulled screen printing using water-based inks only, which are significantly better for our staff and the environment than solvent systems. We pride ourselves on reproducing the look and feel of solvent-based systems with water-based inks.

We also provide speciality finishes including true metallic inks, UV inks, graphite inks and metal leafing and are happy to discuss and source other special finishes.

Paper
We use fine art cotton rag paper for the majority of our editions. We primarily use Somerset papers, as the mill is local to us and we believe their papers are the best the market has to offer.

Gicleé
We also provide archival giclée printing using our Epson SureColour P9000. We offer a range of paper stocks and provide proofing strips of our multiple colour profiles to ensure the closest match and best effect.
We can also provide productions incorporating screen print varnishes and layers to your gicleé print.

Packing
We pack and ship our work with the utmost care and attention. We interleave our prints with acid-free paper, and design and hand-make custom packaging for every order. All editions are shipped with a dedicated fine art handler, whether domestic or international, to ensure safe delivery of your edition.
