Screen Printing Workshops with Make to Make

December 28th, 2015

It’s been a busy December! A big thank you to our friends Kim and Simeon who are running the Make to Make project.  We have had such a great experience being involved with the talented and dedicated designers and makers.  The products that were created using our simple screen printing techniques were truly inspirational and we are already looking forward to the next visit.

We’ve received these photos from a happy customer!  The West Leake Challenge is an annual 5K run event, organised by a local family for their family and friends.  Dot provided performance tops for the event, along with matching hoodies and a special ‘Winners’ top.  Screen printed transfers were used to apply the West Leake Challenge logo to the performance top and also screen printed onto the hoodies.

Performance T-Shirts

It must be spring again.  We always know at Dot when winter has passed because our factory is filled with electric green performance t-shirts for the annual Castleton YHA Run.  We decorated these with screen printed transfers to avoid dye migration. Congratulations to Matt Brennan, pictured here on the right, for his fantastic winning performance.

New Projects

March 12th, 2015

It’s Research & Development time again at Dot and for this season we have some fantastic new projects that we are working on with many of our friends.  The front runners so far are the Black board ink (see photo of one idea for it’s use)and the disappearing ink.  The screen print samples are being processed and developed by Ben in the print workshop and so far the results have been great.  The first samples are currently going out and if you would like Dot to develop some ideas for you please feel free to contact us as we are looking for a few more guinea pigs to help us to develop the screen printed samples.  Other new projecst still to be completed are cracking ink (see photo) that looks like being big for the summer of 2015 and our friend the Luminous ink appears to be making a comeback.  The initial tests are being completed onto single jersey tees and our 100% organic cotton extreme racer back vest and the cracking ink has been screen printed onto a tee shirts and loop back sweatshirt fabric.
