Britain’s Northern Soul captured in print by Solopress

Britain's Northern Soul Art A2 poster print

Some experiences are so essential they are always part of who you are. It’s what inspires artist Neil Thompson to create his paintings, pencil sketches and limited edition prints of the enduring Northern Soul music scene. For our latest Customer Story, Northern Soul’s Peter Doyle reveals why Solopress are always on the right track when it comes to printing Neil’s soulful work…

We specialise in original paintings and prints from the Northern Soul scene, the first and probably the biggest underground music scene in this country. It started in the 1960s and is still going strong today. Britain’s Northern Soul is one of our most popular images. We have had several requests for this image in A2 size – and this is where Solopress came in!

We required several A2 posters, but also needed a small change to the PDF image, which I sent over to Solopress. I checked the price for the prints against other companies, and Solopress was very competitive.

I e-mailed the company with my requirements. Solopress rang me back in a couple of minutes just to confirm how the amendment to the PDF file should be. Solopress regarded the amendment as ‘minor’ and did not charge me for the change.

Within 10 minutes everything was sorted out, and within 48 hours I had my prints, which are superb! Needless to say we will be using Solopress again!

  1. I love designs like this, with words. I particularly like the one with the Cities on it on the UK map, but my older sister would love this as she used to attend Wigan Casino in her day!
