Artwork Design and artwork for screen printing, the best results are achieved when designing for the process.
Some projects are simply a pleasure to work on, and Mr Chuffiewuffie and friends was certainly one of those jobs Advertees enjoy.
These illustrations by Rob Wills seem to spread a little bit of happiness wherever they appear, watching the T shirts leave on the way to there new home was like waving goodbye to a close friend.
Screen printing full colour half toned images is not easy, and printing them with water based inks is harder still. One of the easiest ways to overcome some of the difficulties involved is to select a lighter coloured T shirt to print on (an environmentally friendly decision too) this enables the use of true process printing, which is ideally suited to the transparent nature of water based inks. Using only cyan, magenta, yellow and black a full spectrum of colours can be achieved.
Mr Chuffiewuffie and friends have been printed on organic natural coloured T shirts, a perfect canvas for the full colour illustrations. It allows us to use the most environmentally sound inks with no bleaching additives. Also no extra heat sources are required between printed colours (as needed when using opaque water based inks) thus a very energy efficient choice too. This means Mr Chuffiewuffie, Dozer, Flipper, Hop Hop and Hazel have succeeded in achieving minimum environmental impact.
The Chuffiewuffie Gallery is officially opening on May 30th, 2011. Visit 280 Madeira Drive, Brighton and well worth a look.
Advertees love screen printing with water based inks. Complex full colour designs on light coloured organic T shirts present no problems at all to our experienced printers, and give very little cause for concern on an environmental front. We fully understand the need for diverse range and choice of T shirt colours, but we cannot stress enough the environmental benefits of choosing a lighter coloured T shirt for your screen printed designs.
