Colormaker Industries is proud to have sponsored the latest cover of ‘Print Isn’t Dead’, a cool new screen printing magazine and quarterly publication of London based community of creatives, People of Print. A total of 500 covers were handprinted, each painstakingly and individually screenprinted by the exceptionally talented Heretic Printmakers, who were also responsible for the design.

The cover features layer upon layer of creative visual elements that embody the continually evolving art of print, and of course, are all printed in a vibrant range of Permaprint Premium water based inks.

People of Print were thrilled to have partnered with the Heretic trio on this project, as the trio has shown through their extensive body of work a unique artistic style, vision and masterful printing skills which set them apart from most other screenprinters in the industry.

In order to fully achieve the trio’s artistic vision, it was only natural for People of Print to select Permaprint Premium, which is a high quality ink that not only provides superior performance and colour brightness, but is also a 100% eco-friendly ink. It contains absolutely no ozone-depleting chemicals, volatile solvents, heavy metals and other toxic chemicals.
