Print Shop

The print shop is run by our students and staff.  The students have been busy creating different designs for our customers who range from staff, family, friends and companies.  

Print Shop

Originally, the Print Shop began as printing for clothes, hoodies, t-shirts only. Since its inception the range or produce includes mugs, pillow cases, money boxes and now fridge magnets.

The students learn a multitude of skills throughout the process:

  • Making and researching the designs for the items
  • Uploading the designs to the in house software program
  • Ensuring the vinyl is sized up correctly on all the items being made
  • Setting the machine to cut the design
  • Weeding the design including removing the backing from the vinyl
  • Placing the design on the item and pressing.

The work that goes on in the Print Shop is part of our curriculum as the students work towards their Design Project Open Award.

“Excellent service. Ordered 25 t-shirts, the quality is fantastic, and the print is brilliant. After the first discussion regarding our clubs 140th year the design was quickly agreed, and we have enjoyed seeing the students go through the process via their social media channels. We will be making a 2nd order for our midweek team sponsor. Thanks for working hard to get them done for us.”
