All the way back in 2005, I Dress Myself was founded by Hannah and Peter Conway and began life with them printing in their spare bedroom and washing screens out in the shower. That wasn't going to work long term and we moved into our first studio in a canal-side warehouse in Nottingham in 2006. We always strived to live a low-impact and ethical lifestyle and made the important decision to move away from plastisol inks and solvents to only use eco-friendly water based inks, within our first year of trading. Water based inks are trickier to use as they dry into the screens more easily so we offered a free advisory service to help others move over to water based inks too.
Seventeen years have passed since we first fell in love with screen printing and, today, we’re proud to produce eco-friendly, high quality shirts for fantastic artists, top galleries and brilliant bands all over the world.
These days, we’re based in the beautiful West Country, where we’re lucky to work with an immensely talented team.
What began as a love for the craft of printing has grown into our way of life, livelihood and lifelong passion.
