Diagram showing the plans for Solar panels on the Colormaker Industries factory and warehouse/office roofs.

Colormaker Industries are the manufacturers of Permaset eco-friendly inks located on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia.  Colormaker is committed to supporting the environment and to the continual improvement of its environmental performance, recognising its obligations both locally and globally.

The company has recently signed up for Solar Energy and Colormaker is installing 356 solar panels on the roofs of its buildings.  The installation of extensive solar panels are expected to be completed by the end of September 2019, and once commissioned we will export surplus clean energy back to the grid.  It will be 6-8 weeks until the solar installation and testing phases are completed.  Over this time, we’ll be posting updates every few days to show the progress of the installation.

Here we are on Day #2 of the Solar Power installation. The measuring & marking up phase has been completed and now the L feet are going in. We had a bit of trouble with tech screws which caused some delays, so now we’re pre-drilling holes & using heavier gauge screws.

End of Day #2 of the Solar Installation – as the sun sets on the roof of our factory.

7.8.2019 Day #3 over. A lot of the rails are now in and some panels are being prepped for installation tomorrow

8.8.2019 – Day #4 We had some afternoon delays due to a rain sqall and now high winds with worse expected tomorrow. Here’s a close up of the rails installed so far.

It’s amazing to think that in a few weeks time all our Permaset inks will be made using power that we’ve generated from the sun ☀️ ☀️ 

Check here for updates over the next few days…

Printing school items is not only a great way to get kids pumped up and excited for school, it’s also a fun and affordable back to school project you can do with your kids that lets them express their personality and creativity. All you’ll need is a few water-based fabric paints, printing stencils and stamps, and a whole lot of imagination and creativity!

Making custom shopping bags and tote bags is easy, and requires only a few materials to start.

What’s neither glitter nor pure gold but gives off a brilliant, breathtaking sheen to prints on your shirt? It’s none other than metallic ink, and it gives off just enough shine to make any printed design stand out without being too loud or ostentatious.

Metallic inks are distinct printing inks that have been around for a while but aren’t as commonly used as other water-based inks for printing. There are a few possible reasons for this, one being that people often get intimidated by the boldness of these colours, and are unsure how to use them.
