Screen printing – Really, why should I?

goccoproEach month find out more with Derek Muller of GOCCOPRO UK.

Q) Can you tell us why should our readers screen print?

A) We all know there are some jobs that really can only be screen printed for quality and long lasting print. There is a reason screen printing has been around for so many years, it works. New technologys wow us with their full colour images but in reality how long does the images you print last? Any transfer system washes out quicker than traditional screen print and the same goes for many other modern systems. They are often great for one offs but you just can’t beat the quality of a traditionally screen printed garment.

I think screen-printing works exceptionally well and now a GOCCOPRO makes your high quality screen in virtually no time there is no reason more customers should not be screen printing.

Q) Is there any other way this system can generate additional revenue for a business?

A) Oh! Funny you should ask, Edinburgh University Art department bought a GOCCOPRO to show their students new technology and how advances are being made. They now have a digital screen service where the students email their artwork to the print department who simply print it out and charge the students. The students then take them away and print there own product/art. The speed of turn around has amazed the students and has freed up a large amount of time for the technicians. This is a system that GOCCOPRO owners could introduce and make some additional money very easily. The students mainly create artwork so our video shows some alternative products being printed this month.
