Elshopo is a studio based in Grenoble France with a strong emphasis on the serigraph. It’s a bit challenging to put in nutshell what exactly they do so this is straight from their site:

Elshopo creates, produces and diffuses from A to Z various silk-screened objects (posters, t-shirts, stickers, pancakes, record sleeves, silk-screen machines …), printing events or culinary happenings, initiation workshops and interactive exhibition… In addition, the Elshopo creative studio can also work on your projects in order to bring an original point of view and a fluorescent fame to your business. With Elshopo, a human world, écologic and exciting is still existing!
