Meet the Maker: Basil and Ford

Thursday, September 20, 2018

We are a husband and wife screen printing duo. We met at university where we were both studying Art & Design. In 2011 we got engaged and started the hunt for wedding stationery. We couldn't find what we wanted without a huge price tag so we ended up hand screen printing them ourselves and we caught the bug. Fast forward a couple of years and we were married and still working in London, both in design/ad agencies and then found out we were expecting our first little one. We assessed all our options and decided we wanted to head out of the big smoke before the baby arrived and thought we would go all in and set up Basil & Ford back in Stamford all before Matilda turned up in September 2013. And the rest, as they say is history. Read more
