Paint Me

Adorned with paintings, the fridges of parents across the country bear testimony to the artistic aspirations of children; now thanks to enterprising Hungerford Company Paint Me such artistic flourishes can be captured indelibly on tee-shirts.

Morgan PR discovered all about Paint Me today for a forthcoming feature; the company was founded by entrepreneur Catherine Hickson and through a unique printing system is able to simply capture anyone’s artistic efforts on not just tee-shirts, but fridge magnets, bags, mouse mats and much more besides.

The company has been running parties and events for over a year and enthusiasm for the unique printing system has grown fast with outlets now open at Leeds Castle in Kent and Chessington World of Adventures. Closer to home regular workshops always draw a crowd at the Living Rainforest in Hampstead Norreys.

Catherine summed up the success:“There is something about the process of taking the artwork and printing it on to a tee-shirt or something else, that elevates it, turns it into something truly unique and impressive that never fails to delight not only the artist, but everyone else too."

The Paint Me concept is a spinoff of the core business supplying exclusive paint to fabric designers in the fashion industry. Catherine bought the company three years ago and quickly recognised the potential.

If you fancy discovering the delights of Paint Me for yourself, there is a weekly workshop every Sunday, from 10am to 4pm at above Caffè Uno in the Market Place, Newbury.
