Screen Printing Zindabaad - (Long Live Screen Printing)
Following the re-opening of DMI on 5th June, a 3-day workshop on advanced screen printing was successfully conducted on 8-9-10 June 2015. The workshop was houseful with 43 participants from India and abroad (Sri Lanka and UAE). The participants underwent comprehensive theoretical and practical sessions covering pre press, screen making, printing and post press activities. The feedbacks of participants say it all.
During this DMI workshop, a Wine Box was screen printed involving as many as 22 impressions on MDF board. The project involved screen printing photochromic and thermochromic colour changing inks from Print Dynamic, UV special effects (abrasive, sensation, crystal, glitter, glow in dark, bubble, reflective UVs) from Colors and Skyscreen, and UV ink from Fujifilm Sericol.
“This concept can be used in packaging, gift items, commercial printing,” says Bhargav Mistry, Director of DMI. The participants were presented with an elegant screen printed certificate, certifying their participation in the workshop. The creative certificate is also a masterpiece of value addition.
