Sarah Capel Printing: process and materials

All my products are carefully screen printed by hand, by me, in my studio in South East London. Inks are mixed by hand and colours are matched by eye. I also sew all the cushion covers together myself.

As such, each product is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour and pattern from the images on the website. 

My cushion and lampshade designs are printed on natural linen from Ada & Ina in Kent. Tea towels are 100% cotton and I use premium quality Eco-friendly inks.

My cards are printed on 270gsm card from the G.F Smith Colorplan collection which is FSC certified. 

The lampshade fabric is backed with flame retardant PVC and I recommend using a low energy bulb.

If you would like to order a cushion cover without the cushion pad, or would prefer a microfibre cushion pad rather than a feather pad please email me at sarahcapelprinting@gmail.com and I will be able to assist you. 


I accept payments with PayPal Express Checkout, and with Visa, MasterCard, and American Express debit and credit cards.
