Screen Printing

Screen Printing SuppliesA wide choice of screen printing supplies for professional printing, artwork, home decoration and the classroom. There are the ready mixed Speedball screen printing inks for fabric or paper or the Selectasine ECO pigments and binders for creating your own water based screen printing inks, plus screen printing equipment and emulsions.

The Selectasine screen printing system is simple, economic and flexible in use. Prints have a soft finish and outstanding fastness on fabric. Although designed for screen printing, it can also be brushed, sprayed and blocked. This self-mix premium screen printing ink is ideal for classes in schools and colleges where budget is a factor, and also for experienced printers who will enjoy the flexibility of the system. Binders can be ordered in quantities of 1kg up to 30kg and each of the coloured pigments are available to buy in 50g, 100g, 500g and 1kg sizes. Inks are mixed at a ratio of 1:20 of pigment to binder to ensure prints adhere to fabric and withstand washing. To produce a paint, the proportion of binder can be diluted with water before combining with the pigment. The paint ‘recipe’ will depend on the substrate it is intended for as over dilution of the binder will prevent paint from sticking to the surface.
