What Is Serigraphy?

Serigraphy is the artists' term for silk screen printing, a process which involves a stencil and ink which is forced through a silk screen, although modern versions are often made of nylon or finely woven polyester. One colour is applied at a time and a blade is used to sweep the ink smoothly across the press.

Serigraphy is an extremely ancient form of printing and has been used since the days of the Chinese Song Dynasty (960 - 1279 CE) to transfer exquisite designs to silk material. In modern times, machine-based heat transfer silkscreen printing is used in the textile industry to mass produce attractive prints on fabrics, including t-shirts, curtains, cushion covers and bed linen. Heat transfer is also a popular alternative to sew-in garment labels, especially for underwear and swimming costumes.

Where To Get Flexo & Digital Printing Training?

Posted by David Lee on Jul 8, 2019 9:20:13 AM

Though Flexography has been used in the production of food packaging and labels for use in retail, chemical, pharmaceutical, textiles and service industries for decades, innovation in digital technology continues to drive growth and maintain a positive trend in otherwise challenging times. Much of this success can be attributed to advanced printing equipment but it is the technicians behind the controls who ultimately make the difference between a quality end product and one that fails to meet such high standards.

Posted by David Lee on Jun 14, 2019 9:13:44 AM

The food packaging industry is undergoing something of a cultural shift at present, driven by concerns about sustainability, the saturation of the food market itself, and the increased need to create attractive, cost-effective packaging, which does not inconvenience consumers.

What Are Textile Labels Used For?

Posted by David Lee on Jun 3, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Textile labels are small labels usually made of nylon, taffeta or polyester satin, sewn into the interior of a garment so it is not visible when worn. Textile labels are intended to convey important information about the garment to the consumer. This might include size information, branding, wash care instructions, country of origin, fabric content and product details. All types of clothing and shoe manufacturers use textile labels, in products ranging from dresses and t-shirts to socks and gloves.

As part of the ever evolving world of textile innovation, we will be attending the world's largest international textile and garment technology exhibition; ITMA 2019 in Barcelona! Providing an unrivalled marketplace and knowledge platform, ITMA is set to feature more than 1,600 exhibitors and an attendance of over 120,000 visitors. Come and join us in June!
