British menswear designer, Liam Hodges interest lies in ‘expressive, polysyllabic masculinity’. His brand has been labeled a luxury brand for the mad and bad ones who are desirous of everything and those who foresake conformity everyday not just at the weekend. Last month he asked us to screen print t-shirts for his LFWM18 Collection and we relished at the opportunity.
As we move into the summer months we take a look at some of the best and most exciting events happening across the UK in 2018. Whether you are looking to find your next print investment, check out the latest art exhibition or pick up a handmade masterpiece, there is something for everyone.

Peckham Levels is now open! Thanks to everyone who made it down to the launch party on Friday and stopped by our screen printing station, we hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did! The venue was bursting with amazing food and drink from independent traders, pop up events, exhibitions and talks. If you couldn’t make it, fear not, we’ve created a video from a gallery of photos from the event. Carry on reading to watch a short video of us live printing festive designs by Supermundane.
London-based illustrator Tony Riff learned to draw by copying different styles of cartoons which has helped him to develop his own whimsical style. His work can be described as ‘a colourful mixture of mind blowing, intellectual & playful drawings’. We have asked Tony to create a t-shirt design exclusively for 3rd Rail Print Space Kickstarter. Read on for more details about this exciting collaboration.
The London Illustration Fair came to a close this Sunday after hosting 69 exhibitors, dozens of workshops and showcasing the work of countless creatives. As well showing a selection of Artist Beer Visions screen prints we also used this as an opportunity to give the screen print series we released for Pick Me Up a bit more air time. It was also a great excuse to release a few more products which included festive tea towels and Christmas jumpers designed by Kristyna Baczynski, a new t-shirt and matching sticker sheet by Tony Riff and a fresh 5 colour screen print release from Hattie Stewart. All new products will be hitting the web store tomorrow (Wednesday 7th December). If you didn’t get a chance to make it down fear not! We’ve compiled this gallery of photos of the highlights across the 4 days.
The classic sports cap dates back to the late 80’s with Ralph Lauren being the brand often held responsible for originating the trend. It spread into urban sub-cultures in the 90’s when it was adopted by the hip-hop community and has remained there ever since. A recent resurgence in streetwear trends from that era has seen a rise in its popularity once more.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been working with Space Age Wear on the re-launch of their embroidered cap collection. They’ve really made the most of the process and have managed to incorporate all the main embroidery styles into the range. If you’re still looking for inspiration these guys are an example of how to jump on the cap embroidery trend.
If you’ve browsed our garment page over the last few weeks you may have noticed the addition of a new blank garment brand. Based in Germany Urban Classics have been established for over 10 years in which time they’ve managed to create a collection spanning over 3000 items spread across men’s women’s and kids styles. Focusing mainly on streetwear cuts, outerwear and caps they’re the go to place if you’re looking for long tees, bomber jackets or snapbacks. To celebrate we’ve decided to list our top 5 styles from their catalogue and of course all are perfect for either screen printing or embroidery.
We’ve been working with 4649 Worldwide ever since their very first collection and it’s been great to see the streetwear brand grow into the success it is today. It’s been spotted in numerous music videos, released a catalogue of podcasts and been featured as a pop-up store in Topshop’s flagship Oxford Circus branch. We caught up with creative director Yumi for a well overdue chat.
