Some screen printers steer clear of water based inks because of the perception that they’re tricky to master, but these inks can actually be a joy to use and the results really speak for themselves. Done right, your prints will be softer to the touch, more detailed, more environmentally friendly and more durable than with plastisol inks. Remember these top five tips and you’ll practically be ensuring a perfect print with Permaset water based inks.
Easter is a time for getting together and handing out sweet treats to family and friends, so why not make your own gifts and cards? Here are three of our favourite easy and effective Easter projects that you can achieve with stamping equipment and water-based inks.
Rabbit or egg ribbons for gifts
Patterned ribbon is such a simple way to add a distinctive touch to an Easter egg or gift, and block printing is an ideal way to produce bulk amounts of it! You’ll want to design a small and simple print to suit the ribbon’s width, and then choose a contrasting ink colour so your pattern stands out. We love the idea of repeating a series of rabbit silhouettes or tiny eggs along a thick satin ribbon. You might even choose metallic gold or silver eco-friendly inks, which can look amazing on dark and bright colours.
