Master Printer/Studio Manager
We are a multifaceted publishing house founded by ex-gallerist and art publisher Steve Lazarides. Steve has owned multiple successful studios, setting up Pictures on Walls and Lazarides Editions as well as managing Banksy.
In the last twelve months we have gone from a small company with one member of staff to a rapidly expanding company offering as much in house as we possibly can. We have purchased a Large Format Arizona Océ UV Printer and a Large Format EPSON P8000 Inkjet Printer sitting alongside a Zund Digital Cutter to produce artist editions and bespoke packaging.
We have recently purchased a complete screen printing set up, both textile and paper, and need someone to both print and manage the studio.
You will be required to manage the studio which will involve overseeing and printing the bulk of the jobs that come in. You will be expected to keep the studio clean and well stocked, ready for when jobs arise. You will be expected to be able to take a job from start to finish, from artist liaison to finished print and every step in between. There will be a need for both digital and traditional artworking with an ability to feed in traditional printmaking with the rest of our studios facilities.
You will be expected to be able to find and source commercial jobs, although for the most part, we intend to feed a steady stream of work in. We will negotiate a commission on work bought into the studio. On top of this, you will be expected to cost prices effectively.
We expect you to be extremely capable in all aspects of serigraphy with proven success across the board, from artworking to prep, proofing, editioning and print finishing.
The ability to cost up work, sticking to a budget and to schedule is essential, but you do not necessarily have to have run a print studio before.
Salary circa £30,000 dependant on experience. On top of a base salary, there will be the ability to earn commission and we will provide printers proofs for most longer-run editions.
