The Working Print Studio provides a printing service including wedding and business stationery, greetings cards, postcards and booklets. Blocks can be made to order which remain in the ownership of the customer, and we also have a growing collection of stock blocks which can be used in a design for a small charge. We can also print onto bags and labels for shops and craft workers.

We are also able to set up and arrange the printing of greeting cards, booklets and calendars in full colour. Our customers include: local artists wishing to develop a range of greeting cards, for whom we print short runs to test out which designs to produce in larger quantities: voluntary organisations requiring products for fund-raising such as calendars and postcards: booklets such as the Flower Show Schedule for Borgue and A4 posters for community events and artists’ exhibitions.

Art Materials: The Studio aims to stock sketchpads, sets of brushes and paints, pencils, charcoals and pastels, and can obtain other items to order from a comprehensive catalogue.

We now stock art, print and craft related kits for children and beginners, including Airfix models and starter kits for a range of arts and crafts (sketching, painting, felting and printing.)
