A House-full Textile Printing Workshop

The recent workshop on advanced textile screen printing held at DMI was houseful with 58 participants coming from all over India, Egypt, UAE, etc. They spent 3-days (29-31 August 2016) in theory classes and practical sessions exclusively conducted by Bhargav Mistry, Director of DMI. He touched upon a wide range of topics related to pre press, color separation, design elements, screen making, QC and management aspects related to screen printing. In the practical sessions, innovative t-shirt designs were screen printed on Grafica's nano-prinTag plus, an automatic direct to garment screen printing machine.

My dad had attended DMI workshop about a year ago and he suggested me that to gain knowledge in screen printing I should attend this workshop. Rushi Thakker, Rishi Nishi Graphics, Ahmedabad.

I have understood that there is much more than what I was doing in my screen printing. B. Devaraj, Ahash Printers, Tirupur.

I am overwhelmed by the kind of educational activities undertaken by DMI under the guidance of stalwart Bhargav Mistry who made screen printing more interesting than before. Arun Dani, Screen Graphics, Hubli.

Being ceramic decal printers we came to DMI to update our knowledge in pre press, screen making, (although it was a textile screen printing workshop!) as we used to face problem in these crucial areas. Ahmed Alshanawany, Universal Porcelain, Cairo, Egypt

I came here to learn from the master of screen printing who taught us how to reduce wastage of inks and paper (decal papers are costly!), increase productivity, and improve quality. Mohamed Mobarez, Universal Porcelain, Cairo, Egypt

I and 5 students from our college attended DMI workshop to learn the modern method of screen printing. V. Anandavel & 5 students, Kongo Engineering College, Erode

The workshop was super-extra excellent. We are equally impressed by Bhargav Mistry and his staff who have full of knowledge. We request DMI to conduct such workshops in different places so that many printers can learn the best knowledge from you and grow in business. We will change our set up as per DMI's system. We learnt that by using cheaper materials we are only wasting our time. Mahendra Singh Sinwar/Mehul Harwami, Ratan Paper, Meerut

DMI has a wonderful environment backed by excellent staffs who were willingly sharing every bit of knowledge in screen printing. I have understood that as printers we have to be more innovative and creative to offer the best to our customers. Having said, knowledge is the key. Vijay Yetapu, Dopicup Graphics & Printing, Hyderabad

Even with a limited knowledge of Photoshop, I was able to make sense of what Bhargav was explaining. We also learnt the method of accurate cost calculations. Harsh Agarwal, Instatech Printworms, Lucknow.

We feel lucky that after great research, Bhargav Mistry has made efforts to pass on a well refined knowledge in advanced screen printing to screen printers who struggle to improve quality and productivity. Ahmed Raza/Shyam Thakur, G.K. Printco, Kolkata
