What is screen printing?
Screen printing is a traditional printing process that has been around for hundreds of years. In essence it involves making a stencil and then pushing ink through it onto the other side. This is a great process for large runs because it provides consistency at speed and is therefore capable of producing top quality products at great value.
Waterbased screen printing
At The Print Bar we are unique in that we use waterbase inks. This means we are one of the only printing companies in Australia with a minimal environmental footprint. What does this mean for you? The benefit of waterbased inks over traditional inks is that they have a soft texture and they last as long as the garment does, with no signs of cracking or peeling over time. The waterbased inks are harder to work with, but the results speak for themselves.
