About Printall Studios


OUR STORY

From a dingy small space we have blossomed into a light, bright and well stocked textile print room in Bermondsey, London.  Set up by Andy Leggatt after acquiring one print table, then another and another...

Andy has been in the screen print business as a supplier to the industry for over fourteen years. In 2008 after acquiring a table, Andy decided to set up a space for screen printing in a railway arch in Deptford, along with a few loyal textile designers who ran their freelance business from there.

Demand soon grew, until a new home was needed. Cut to 2015, after 2 moves and 5 years in The Biscuit Factory, we're expanding yet again and now find ourselves thriving with our many different print practitioners in our brand new Printall Studios based in the arches on 42 Raymouth Road.

We're excited about our new chapter in the middle of a burgeoning art community in South East London. Some of our members have been with us since the beginning and many new faces create an interesting and supportive network of freelancers and independent labels.
