First let me wish all of you a Happy Independence Day.
Today India is celebrating its 69th Year of Independence and DMI (Dhirubhai Mistry Institute For Print Education Research & Training) is celebrating 9th successful years giving freedom to screen printers by updating their knowledge FREE OF COST.
The factors that kept our screen printers in dependence and away from independence was due to lack of knowledge and no access to practical training in advance screen printing technology.
In past 9 years DMI has given lots of freedom to many professional screen printers and students to explore their creativity in Advance Screen Printing, UV special effects, print finishing and now DMI has taken the challenge to explore many creative ideas into textile/garment screen printing.
Since 1989 Grafica has been a backbone of the screen printing industry and has developed many high quality screen printing machines for graphics and textile screen printers.
Our research and innovation in machinery has not only supported our country to save foreign currency to certain extend but have also given lots of freedom to existing and upcoming screen printers, especially in small towns and villages who were having limited access towards automation in screen printing technology.
At GRAFICA & DMI screen printers have total freedom to access our FREE workshops and training programs, freedom to share their problems, freedom to get hands-on-training from experts, freedom to see latest techniques practical, freedom to learn from various high quality samples and freedom to experiment on their products using our innovative machines.
Screen printers who are still struggling to achieve perfection in quality and want to learn latest techniques in screen printing then participate in DMI workshops and training programs regularly and don’t forget to also send your staff and employees for training because they are the ones who needs to upgrade their knowledge.
So my dear screen printers on this 69th year of independence I would strongly recommend you to participate in DMI (Dhirubhai Mistry Institute For Print Education Research & Training) Workshops and Training program to give yourself total freedom to explore your creativity and give yourself freedom to grow.
More than 1200 print professionals in 9 years at DMI have learn how to become independent so what are you waiting for…
