---------------------------------------------

My name is Alex, and I'd like your help to create a series of unique silkscreen printed posters.

Each poster visualises soundwaves generated by some of my favourite bleep, techno and rave tracks. Using traditional, hand-pulled, silkscreen printing processes each waveform is lovingly crafted into a limited edition A2 print, signed and numbered by me.

The 12 prints.

02: Autechre – Second Bad Vilbel (Warp Records)
03: Forgemasters – Track With No Name (Warp Records)
04: LFO – LFO / The Leeds Warehouse Mix (Warp Records) 
05: Luke Vibert – I Love Acid (Warp Records)
06: Squarepusher – My Red Hot Car (Warp Records)
07: Aphex Twin – Digeridoo (R&S Records) 
08: Altern 8 – Activ 8 / Hardcore Holocaust Mix (Network Records)
09: Orbital – Chime (FFRR) 
10: 808 State – Pacific State (ZTT Records)

The paper.

Each white waveform is printed onto a weighty stock: 270gsm Colorplan by GFSmith. Why? Artists and designers all over the world use this premium uncoated paper because it is beautiful, iconic, and FSC certified. The waveform is printed in white.


Screen printing.

Silkscreen printing is a traditional, versatile technique that uses mesh to create a stencil for artists to print their work onto almost any surface. Ink is 'pushed' through the stencil by hand using a squeegee, leaving a beautiful finish. The printer I use, I Dress Myself, minimise the use of natural resources and were the first screen printers in the UK to use 100% solvent-free water-based inks for paper and garment printing. They source products from companies with robust ethical standards.


Strictly limited edition.

Only 25 of each will be produced in this series. The earlier you back the project, the earlier your edition will be. Get in fast though: once each print is sold out it will never be reprinted at this size.


What your money pays for.

Production costs, packaging, and postage.

Spread the word.

I can only pull this off with your help. Please spread the word on Twitter – follow me @Szabo_Haslam, share on Facebook, and post on any blogs you come across. Regular updates will be posted on my Tumblr for you to share.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The biggest challenge is reaching the goal: this is set to make sure all costs for printing, packaging and postage are covered. I have a lot of experience working with printers and great care is taken to make sure each print is of the highest quality; although the silk-screen process leads to tiny imperfections, this is part of what makes each print unique.

Hand-pulled silk-screen printing cannot be churned out in 5 minutes at the touch of a button: it takes a steady hand, a keen eye, with a lot of preparation and effort. The printer aims to complete orders within two weeks. Once I have the prints delivery to customers in the UK should take no more than 3 working days but overseas orders will take longer to arrive. I expect all orders to be delivered within 4 weeks of the end of the funding period, in time for Christmas.

FAQ

  • Strangely, Kickstarter deliberately restrict buyers to just one pledge.

    You can get around it by signing up for a new Kickstarter account, possibly using a different email or username, for each additional pledge you want to make. I would prefer this method as it makes it easier for me to keep track of orders.

    Alternatively you may be able to increase the amount you pledge for a poster, and email me details of any others you want to buy. If the print has sold out I'll notify you when I run my daily stock check.

    Last updated:
  • No. Postage and packaging would be a nightmare, I would have to charge much more, and I would be inundated by requests for different frame styles.
