The North Is Ace: 420 Edition [A4]
The North Is Ace is a celebration of being from the North Of England, and is easily Secret Industries most known piece of work. The seasonal editions take a slightly different approach to the regular screen-printed poster editions. This one is for The Day Of The Smoker, April 20th – a print especially for the Northern Smoker in your life, or for those people that just like little green bois! This is an A4 print with black ink on 270gsm Emerald Green stock from GF Smith Colorplan. The tag bar at the bottom has a small leaf logo alongside the Secret Industries logo. The tagline reads ‘Secret Industries. Keep on rolling. Proper good’. This is a limited run of 13 prints, hand numbered with a print-run tag of ‘420-22’
This year’s edition also comes with a colour coordinated sticker and badge set (see gallery photos)
All A4 prints are shipped with a backing board and in a compostable film sleeve, and all postal packaging is recycled/recyclable. In an effort to further sustainability, I try to reuse as much of my production materials as possible; this may mean that backing boards etc may be cut from old cardboard packaging.
