Who we are

APE MADE is a one-woman business – all artwork, design, screen printing, and packaging is done by hand by April Bleakney (aka Ape).
While the company officially launched out of a basement in Kent in 2011, you may have APE MADE shirts dating back to 2009 when April began printing on the side during the recession.
April believes in purpose-driven printmaking and strives to engage with the community via the arts.
When she’s not screen printing, April also works in a variety of other media.
