clean and retro TYPOGRAPHY
A small family business based on, and named after, a beautiful spot on the north Cornish coast.
Having worked in marketing and events, my entire career I’ve always had a little creative part of my brain ticking away.
While looking for prints for our own renovation project I noticed the rising popularity of typography prints but nothing quite hit the mark for me.
I started to dabble with designing my own, experimenting a lot, and Pentire Prints was born.
The inspiration behind the name and the prints
We launched with a small collection but there are many new designs in the pipeline and plans to work with local photographers and artists.
The inspiration behind the prints is the type of life we aspire to live; coastal, simple and a touch retro.
At the time we lived in Pentire and I love a bit of alliteration so the name was easy!
The prints are all designed by me, then printed and cut by hand by a local Cornish printer to give the best possible finish.
We use Giclée printing and top-quality paper to make the colours pop and ensure the prints have a long life-span.
I’m drawn to very simple clean designs and retro colours so that’s definitely a theme of our prints.
It’s been so exciting to see the way customers have framed and hung the prints, coupling them with other amazing prints and putting them in spaces I wouldn’t have thought of.
It’s a real joy.
