SFXC brings you yet another printing service! Using a medium that is centuries old, it is a core practice for many creative and artistic professionals working with inks and paints, in design and product development.
Our screen printing partner Harvey Lloyd Screens
, is based in Wadhurst, Sussex. We’ve developed a brilliant relationship working directly with the team to bring our customers quality prints every time.
We supply the inks, they do the printing!
Set up in 1976 and run by Steve and Tracey, their expertise is second to none. Serving a variety of sectors, they have worked with the likes of Tom Pigeon, Anthony Burrill and Poul Webb.

Techniques and materials that don’t fit the status quo are welcomed with open arms. Even items designed with unique shapes are accepted.
They love to experiment, so specialist inks like ours certainly fit the bill! Smart inks and pigments often require bespoke binder technology combined with application and curing techniques when screen printing onto different substrates.

At first glance, the production workshop at HLS seems modest and compact. Yet, it has character. Like the Tardis- whilst small, it is also mighty. There are enough drying racks for big orders or corporate jobs, with mesh screens and squeegees in all sizes hanging from the walls.
Should you require flexibility in the printing process, the workshop houses two types of printing beds. One is automatic and the other a smaller, manual hand press. This means they cater for one-off jobs in addition to larger scale briefs.
Nearly every interior surface pays homage to the colourful craft of screen printing. As you'd expect in a place that plays with paint all day, the workshop is marbled with colour in every shade. There are pots stacked up high and a medley of splattered containers wherever you look.
In the upstairs loft, an easy-going charm pervades the space. The impressive white and blue screen printed floor is a mission statement; the perfect place to lounge on a deck chair and peruse the assortment of artistic literature.
