Transept : 'Buff as Fuck'

Norwich based synth-folk drone band Transept lovingly (and somewhat messily!!) printed the covers for their new album here at Stew Print Rooms. Each cover was mono printed by the band before the text was screen printed over the top by Print Room technician Jo Stafford so each LP / CD is completely individual and unique - to grab yourself one head here.


New Year's Resolution

So our New Year's Resolution here at Stew Print Rooms was amongst other things to use the blog to post about the great things that our Print Room Members are getting up to. So seeing as it is the end of March we thought we best get started on it!!
