Eco-friendly screen printing on clothing
We specialise in screen printing by hand using eco-friendly inks to produce high quality products with attention to detail.
We print T-shirts and other garments, art prints and custom packaging
Most commercial screen printers print garments using plastisol inks, which are easy to use and last well.
However, plastisol inks contain PVC and phthalates that are harmful to the environment and have been linked to numerous medical disorders.
Plastisol inks also require the use of harmful solvents in the cleaning process.
Water based inks do not contain PVC or phthalates and you don’t need solvents to clean the screens down after they’ve been used – you can clean them with water.
Water based inks have the added benefit that they don’t have a rubbery feel like plastisol inks or transfer printing and are softer to the touch.
Silk-Screen printed clothing CMYK
We are able to print up to 6 spot colours or if you wish to replicate a design with many more colours, gradients or achieve a photo-realistic print we use a system called 4 colour process printing.
This works similarly to your desktop printer using Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black to create the image.
Spot colours can also be applied using this method of screen printed.
The prints created by silk serigraphy are very durable, do not wash off (unlike some digital printing methods) and in many cases tend to be more durable than the garment itself!

is a printing method that transfers your design onto an item of clothing or work wear of your choice.
Your artwork is separated into its constituent colours and exposed onto a fine mesh screen that is covered with light sensitive emulsion.
Ink is passed through this mesh screen onto your garment which is then put through a tunnel dryer to bake the design onto it.
For each colour in your design a separate screen is required as each colour is printed separately.
