  • Description

    These lovely labels will add a homely charm to your homemade jam. There are four different designs, featuring cherries, pears, apples, strawberries and brambles, each with plenty of space for writing. 
     
    The labels have been printed on a traditional press using an engraved metal plate, or die. The die stamping has the effect of raising the printing slightly, giving the labels a lovely embossed feel, far removed from today’s flat digital printing. 
     
    Pack of 16 self adhesive labels, four of each design. Each label is 8cm x 5.5cm 
       
     Kim’s jam label design is engraved onto a plate using a process call intaglio. This means that the image is engraved into the plate rather than being raised from the plate. The ink is then used to fill in the groves from the engraving. 
     
    In the intaglio process the jam label images are projected onto a photosensitive metal plate. The chemical coating on the plate reacts to light and will retain an image of whatever was projected on to it. The plate is then sprayed with an acid which will eat away at all the areas that have had light projected on them creating the image.  
     
    Huge pressure is then applied onto the plate to print the labels. It is this pressure which gives the labels the wonderful embossed quality.

    Kim Jenkins

    Printmaker who recyles London's rubbish

    Kim is a London based printmaker who recycles the cities rubbish into functional and striking plant pot holders. She has market traders who save their colourful fruit and veg sacks for her but she can still be spotted “trawling through the rubbish at the end of the day, which often raises a few eyebrows”.

    But Kim’s main passion is printmaking, she studied Fine Art Printmaking to M.A level at Camberwell college of Art and now teaches a degree level course at London College and has her own workshop in the city.

    In between printmaking and scouring London’s rubbish Kim enjoys traveling and cycling. She combined the two on a trip to Romania where she was inspired by the vibrancy of the country and the people’s dependence on natural resources, not through choice but necessity.

    She is also greatly inspired by birds and wildlife, a constant theme that runs through her printmaking from seed packets to jam labels.
