Almost six years ago the little catalogue "SQUEEGEE! - the screenprint movement" has been released. Since then the movement has grown, many new gig posters of many (also new) European artists have been printed and released.

Now it's time for a new book!

The first issue was partly financed through adds and private investment. For this time we (Joris Diks & Bernie 'Señor Burns' Hofmann) want to get this done with the help of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter!

Gig posters, or concert posters, are limited edition prints created by graphic artists to commemorate a particular musical event, gig, or tour. They are often silkscreen printed (screenprinted) and usually signed and numbered, making for unique and collectible pieces of art. Gig posters are different to promotional posters in that the time intensive and limited nature of their production means they are commonly sold as band merchandise, as well as traded and sold by collectors.

SQUEEGEE!! - The European gig poster movement

  • A full colour, offset printed, stitched softcover book
  • 180 pages
  • the size of 17 x 23 cm (6.7 x 9.0 inches)
  • language: English
  • 36 artists & Studios featured:

Antighost / Arrache toi un Oeil / Black Forest Industries / The Bicycle Press / Clockwork Pictures / Douze / Elvisdead / Error! Design / Fancy Art Club / Fuzzgun / Gosterk / Michael Hacker / Handprinted Stuff / Grace Helly / Idle Beats / The Impossible Machine / Janta Island / Willem Kolvoort / Kopfüber / Simon Marchner / Monostereo / Jean Mosambi / My Name Is Bri / Münster / Mara Piccione / Rainbow Posters / Señor Burns / Sharlach / Spiegelsaal / Studio Captain / Talkseek / Damien Tran / Kunny van der Ploeg / Jelle van Gosliga / Carlo Vivary / Zum Heimathafen

  • lots of poster images, introducing you to the poster shows FLATSTOCK, COLORED GIGS, POSTERS ROCK! and LE GIG POSTER? & giving you a look behind the scenes and inside some of the studios.

As you can see - we’re almost done:

This is an actual printed dummy, no mock-up!
This is an actual printed dummy, no mock-up!

Philipp Dittmar from Nuremberg succeeded not just with a great Bachelor work recently - a fanzine on posters: he also did an internship at the studio of Señor Burns, THE RED CAN COMPANY. Who better than him could be responsible for the layout. He already did a great job putting it all together. From now on we’re just making small changes, add last materials and putting the dots on the i's.

As soon as the Kickstarter campaign succeeded, all the names of you great backers will be added to the book!  Each backer's  name will be printed on the first and the last double-page!

We will have a last testbook/dummy printed and after that in early August 2016 the PUSTET printery in Regensburg, Germany is already expecting our “GO!” for the printing of the book.

In early September 2016 we'll start to send out the finished books and all rewards to our great backers. In the best case you'll receive your rewards before September 16th, as this is also the official release day for the SQUEEGEE!! book during the COLORED GIGS poster show in Munich, Germany with some of the poster artists attending.

As there are so many different sizes and weights within the rewards we hope you understand free shipping is way too tricky to handle but we ask for the lowest pledge possible instead.

The main idea behind this campaign is to get as many of you convinced of the SQUEEGEE!! book and want you to pre-order it. The more you pledge, the closer we get to the finished, printed result!

But of course we prepared some little extra goodies they're worth to pay your attention to - so here you go for our rewards:

NEW! (by July 17th): Artist involved, Jean Mosambi, had such a nice design so we couldn't resist and decided to make these Shirts printed on demand for you backers interested:

If you already backed some different reward you can either upgrade to a "plus T-Shirt"-reward or just pledge the amount of 15.- € on top of what you already backed.

This high quality Shirt from THOKKTHOKK (organic cotton & fair trade) will be 3-colour printed with waterbased inks. We ask for your gender & size after the end of the campaign.

If you just say: "Great idea! Go for it, guys!" you might choose to pledge 5.- € and be fine. We say "THANK YOU!" and therefor put your name on the list of supporters in the book, just as any other backers' name, too!

Next reward in line of course: the book itself! Either make your choice of one single copy for your own or the "TRIPLE READ": one SQUEEGEE!! for you and two to give away - something for the generous ones of you...

Both of these rewards also contain an offset printed postcard with the cover image and stickers - just as any other upcoming reward does as well.

And then we have the series of "Mini prints"!

8 original screenprinted artworks by some of the talented artists from inside the book. They're all the same size like the book, 17 x 23 cm (6.7 x 9.0 inches) and with the colour scheme of the book layout.

If you go for the "SPECIAL", one randomly chosen mini print will be added to the book. And if you prefer the "DELUXE", three different, randomly chosen mini prints will be added to the book and put together in a cardboard box!

As an extra surprise we also add one randomly chosen mini print to the "TRIPLE READ"!

You want them all, the whole series of all 8 mini prints? Sure! Just pledge the "DELUXE COLLECTION" and it's yours, added to the book and all within a cardboard box!

A little more exclusive is our "COLLECTORS ITEM": we have 36 original screenprinted posters, one of each artist that is also shown in the book! For this reward one randomly chosen poster will be added to a copy of SQUEEGEE!! and on top we also put one randomly chosen mini print!

Really the "GREATEST DEAL" is getting some different 36 original posters all at once! Plus the whole series of 8 mini prints! Plus three copies of the SQUEEGEE!! book!

! USEFUL PAYMENT INFORMATION FOR GERMAN BACKERS ! Innerhalb Deutschlands könnt Ihr unser Projekt auch mit einem SEPA-Lastschriftmandat unterstützen! Keine Kreditkarte erforderlich !

 

First of all we would be really happy if you'll back our project and this campaign becomes a success!

This is how the money funded will be used:

If it turns out that we stretch our goal, several options are waiting in line: mixing paper types for the different chapters in the book, being able to honour the work of layout and photographies with a few more Euros, maybe we need a higher edition on printed books then - so we'll see! And let you know in the "Updates" section below!

Señor Burns, aged 42, originaly a carpenter, now poster maker, father, doing gig posters for about eleven years now, running a screenprinting studio in Munich, germany: THE RED CAN COMPANY. Published a catalogue of his own works in 2009 and the first issue of SQUEEGEE! in 2010 (and a 2nd, updated edition in 2012).

Joris Diks, aged 37, loves traveling the world and making screenprinted gigposters and filmposters. He runs his screenprinting studio called HANDPRINTED STUFF from Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Risks and challenges

We are prepared, and so is the book, so are all the objects we offered as rewards above. Just as soon as the campaign ends successfully after July 29th, 2016 we go straight into production process.
By now we do not expect any unexpected circumstances that will cause problems or delay.
But if there are, we'll let you know in the "Updates" section above.
Thanks for your support!
