Mr Yen talks Yoke

This week’s paper finds are by Yoke. Yoke is Mark and Zoe who are based in Scotland, UK and they create hand screen printed products that are bright and cheerful.

Yoke’s fun and colourful screen printed products are simple and bold and they use iconic images that have a playful element about them, so they’re sure to make you smile when you see them! Every design is bright and cheery and promotes a great positive outlook, such as the “Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining” print.

As each piece is printed by hand, there are slight variations between products, but this is all part of the charm of screen printing isn’t it…plus it’s these little imperfections that give something that special hand made feel.

Each of the illustrations created by Yoke, start of their lives as papercuts, which are then developed to be used to create hand printed screen printed products – such as their prints. Yoke also print greeting cards too, which you can see in the images, so you can send some fun and friendly cards this Christmas! Yoke also screen print onto canvas bags too.
