Description

Jam Art Factory is a growing Irish art and design company based in Dublin’s city centre. Jam Art Factory sells the work of 50+ independent Irish artists and makers and is especially known for its selection of prints, which ranges from small affordable digital prints to large-scale, archival quality, signed limited edition prints. Jam Art Factory was founded in 2011 by brothers Mark and John and has continued to increase its presence within the Irish arts and retail communities ever since. We currently have two shops, a studio space, and an online store, jamartprints.com, which sells to customers all over the world.

Our small staff of seven people is a close knit group that is passionate about the arts and dedicated to furthering the success of Jam Art Factory and its other projects. One of our most exciting projects is a new e-commerce business we have launched called Crosstown Prints, which sells city-themed prints exclusively created for Crosstown Prints by an exciting roster of international artists. Although we just launched Crosstown Prints in January 2021, we plan to greatly expand our number of prints, featured cities and participating artists this year. We are therefore looking to recruit a new member to our staff that will work across aspects of both Jam Art Factory and Crosstown Prints and help us to make both brands the best they can be!
