Print Info

Alongside the work we publish under Tartaruga Records and Tartaruga Press, we operate a small print studio specialising in silkscreen printing by hand. 

Most of the work we have published and released features some screenprinted element, from record and book covers to limited edition prints. We also print work for other labels, venues, and promoters, including Cafe Oto, Vivod and Houndstooth. For examples of our print work, please see the prints section of the site. 

We specialise in printing on to paper/card, including LP or CD packaging. We carry stock paper for poster/art prints, but are more than happy to source other speciality papers or use pre-supplied material. We use water-based inks for all print work and use recycled material where possible.
