April in the Studio

What we've been up to in the Back & Forth studio over the past month...

D*Face Deck No.1 - Turncoat

We hand-screen-printed the first instalment of legendary street artist, D*Face’s (@dface_official) Decks. Printed on sustainably sourced 100% Canadian Maple, each board features a vibrant five-colour screen-printing process. With single-colour silkscreen prints on the deck tops, with assorted coloured stains, this limited run of 300 are individually hand-numbered by the D*Face himself. Don't miss out on this exclusive collection!

Yes Jam Decks!

We collaborated with the guys at Yes Fam (@yesfamagram) and the non-profit organisation, Everyone on Boards (@everyone_on_boards), to print this vibrant series of decks in anticipation of their annual Yes Jam event in London. These boards were printed with a fluorescent base and text, making them unmissable during the event! More details on how the event went down below.

Wooden Wife 420 Decks

With art by @skirazz, we worked with Portsmouth skate brand, Wooden Wife (@woodenwifeskateboards) to print these 420 boards, which were released, of course, on April 20th at 4:20 pm. Only 24 of these were made, so grab them while you can!

Maverick Apparel

Once again, we collaborated with Maverick Race (@maverickrace), to print a series of soft, tri-blend fabrication running gear and classic pullover crew neck sweatshirts using eco-friendly water based inks.

Coastal Barbarians Rowing Club T Shirts

We teamed up with Dorset’s very own Rowing Club, the Coastal Barbarians (@coastalbarbarians), to print these bright and colourful event T-shirts for their very first regatta, held in Swanage on Saturday, April 27th, 2024. Like the Maverick apparel above, these were also printed with eco-friendly ink. Find out more about the designer of the graphic below.
