Upcoming Events & ITMA 2015 Update

December 6, 2015 Leave a comment

Hi Friends,

There are many events at Grafica and DMI in a row this month.

After I returned from the ITMA’15, a mega exhibition related to textile/garment industry held on 12-19 November 2015 in Milan, Italy. As an Indian distributor of Aeoon Technologies, Austria, we also shared a common platform with Aeoon to promote Aeoon KYO series digital printers in India.

Aeoon Direct to Garment Digital Printing Machine

Aeoon @ITMA 2015, Milan, Italy

Aeoon’s young and super sturdy machines have really rocked and proved their strength in the global market by securing several order bookings at ITMA.

This shows that despite the severe competition, their machine is one of the finest in the world. I came to know that some of their customers were using other DTG digital printing machines, but they were quite disappointed in terms of quality and productivity, hence they turned to Aeoon. That’s really amazing.

Aeoon’s few World Wide Distributors

The success of Aeoon Technologies is purely on merits of – Quality of their machine, striking design, productive features, performance and higher customer satisfaction. I would say the credit for Aeoon’s success should also go to their network of loyal dealers/ distributors and of course Aeoon management’s trust and confidence in them … I feel for a manufacturing companies like us, gaining dealer’s and customers’ loyalty and trust is very important for the growth and success in business and Aeoon has proved to be the best company to satisfy their dealers and distributors.

DMI Introduces New Courses on Art & Serigraphy Screen Printing the CAZAWAY

September 12, 2015 Leave a comment

Before I continue writing about my last workshop update on textile (t-shirt/garment) screen printing I would like you to note my next workshop dates at DMI.

29 – 30 Sept, 1 Oct 2015
Workshop on Advance Screen Printing Process on Graphics, UV Print Finishing, UV Special Effects & Packaging

27-28-29 Oct 2015
Workshop on Advance Textile Screen Printing Process, Special Effects on Garments & Heat Transfers

If you wish to participate register online soon as seats are filling up quickly…

My 1st Workshop is on graphics, commercial and value addition on packaging wherein I shall mainly focus on two aspect of screen printing. On graphics side I shall demonstrate how to print moiré free, digital like quality graphics using traditional screen printing process with various UV special effects inks and varnishes.

DMI_Workshop_20150825-182

And on packaging side I shall demonstrate some innovative ideas to add value into your packaging products through screen printing process.

Here’s a video presentation of some of DMI’s finest special effects screen printed in my various Workshops & Training programs.


And on last day I shall just show some highlights about serigraphy (art screen printing) which is now gaining popularity in India. Since we have just started working on this new technique in DMI hence it will take few months to master on this subject and bring it into my workshops as a regular subject on this topic.

CAZA-2 CAZA-1

In serigraphy screen printing many printers ask me why cannot we print serigraphy using high quality digital printing machine ?
The first reason is that if it is digital, it’s not “serigraphy” which is the latin name of screen printing ! This technic exists and the name of those prints is “giclée” or “digigraphy”.

There are many other reasons why we cannot but I shall highlight those points in my workshop but maybe the main reason is how can we add value addition and UV special effects in serigraphy after we print digitally. I mean unless it’s a flat bed digital machine we get a chance to register the job like traditional three guides system as we use in screen printing but how will you register the job on screen printing machine to add UV special effects etc. if it’s printed on a digital machines. Many experts have also informed me that even to register jobs printed on flat bed digital machines are also difficult to match because they are also not that perfect and dimensionally stable piece to piece.

So after a long break we shall once again demonstrate how you can earn through serigraphy screen printing using various UV special effects screen printing to add value in your arts and graphics.

I have observed than in India there are few serigraphy screen printers and most of them print cut colours (solid flat colours) without halftones so most of their arts do not have gradation and halftones and that’s the reason they end up printing 12-14-16 or some times even more colours but they can never achieve gradations in their prints and arts are all made of brush strokes and strokes are mainly never flat tints unless painted specifically with flat colours.

CAZA-3

So without gradations and vignettes one cannot product exact reproduction of the original art no matter how many colour are printed. Even the separation will take hours to divide image into special colours. As matter of fact, some American screen printers made and often still make serigraphy with 50 printed colours and sometimes more. In the past, Michel Caza printed one time in the seventies 100 colours just as a “challenge” ! But to avoid this, he invented in the sixties the “halftones without dots” that allows to print full colour jobs with between 9 and 14 colours. Then, and still now, he put this technique to 7 printed colours.

FROMME-DOUGLAS-PETER--1989-74X90cm- VERDIER-FABIENNE--2005-56X76cm-

There are many companies who print serigraphy on offset machine but those prints look very much flat when compared to screen printed serigraphy and that’s because of the ink thickness achieved through screen printing. But to print special effects one has to anyway depend on screen printing. Here again, same as above, if it is “offset”, it cannot be “serigraphy”. Fine art prints are then made in what is named “photolithography” a name coming from the old technique from which offset was invented name “stone-lithography”.

My guru Michel Caza in Paris, France is one of the finest serigraphy screen printers and in his company “Graficaza” he had one division mainly focused and specialised on serigraphy (art screen printing). This company succeeded 1984 to “Atelier d’Art Michel Caza” existing since 1964. Graficaza was sold 2004, but they stop to screen print Fine art and luxury POP and disappeared 2005! Even till today he still enjoys printing fine art and serigraphy near Paris, in the screen printing workshop of his friend, the now famous artist Fabienne Verdier. In addition to several serigraphies printed for and with Fabienne, he printed this year two serigraphies of his wife Therese, painter but also Yoga and Ayurveda teacher. Some of those serigraphies were given to the winners of Gold Awards in the FESPA competition.


I was one of his lucky pupil who got my training from him in 2003 when I visited Graficaza in Paris, France to learn from the master of screen printing.

In fact here I would like to inform you that on December 2006, DMI was inaugurated by my guru Michel Caza and he conducted two workshops one after another and his second workshop was on serigraphy screen printing.

  2006-12-8to10-Workshop-19 2006-12-8to10-Workshop-282006-12-8to10-Workshop-21 2006-12-5to7-Workshop-462006-12-5to7-Workshop-11 2006-12-5to7-Workshop-40
So with all his blessings and knowledge today after 9 years I am proud to announce regular workshop on arts and serigraphy screen printing soon at DMI…

After he conducted his first serigraphy workshop in DMI, we continued to demonstrate serigraphy screen printing but very few screen printers had shown serious interest on this process because they had to invest on machine and good screen making system which was expensive those days and without proper equipment one cannot print high quality serigraphy.

But today I don’t see that as an issue because Grafica now has more than thousand’s of screen printers using our Nano range of products and out of those many have invested in NPL which includes of UV curing machine and 5-In-1 screen making system. Those printers who have screen printing machine, proper screen making system and UV Curing Machine can very well high quality print serigraphy.

So if you have already automated your shop floor and are seeking for some diversification in business or want to learn something new than this is the right time to invest your time and energy to learn serigraphy at DMI and learn how to reproduce arts and paintings using traditional screen printing process. So with the knowledge and technique given to me by my Guru Michel Caza lets all learn serigraphy screen printing the Cazaway process at DMI…

Now report about my last textile workshop:

DMI_Workshop_20150825-232

In this workshop for the first time and now forever we will only demonstrate how to print digital like quality through traditional screen printing process on t-shirts and garments.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW COMPLETE PHOTO GALLERY OF OUR LAST TEXTILE WORKSHOP

Now at DMI I will only teach all garment screen printers how to achieve continuous tone printing through traditional screen printing process.

DMI_Workshop_20150825-329 IMG_2909.JPG IMG_2910.JPG IMG_2913.JPG

I am sorry if you want to still learn the traditional, outdated, dirty and ugly looking halftone dots (45, 55, 65 LPI etc.) and also want to understand how to avoid moire in screen printing than you will have to look for an outdated screen printing institute because at DMI the kind of process I teach there is no moire issue now anymore and in textile screen printing we never print rational halftone dots anymore. Hence in all my future workshop the topic “how to avoid moire in screen printing” has been removed forever because, I simply don’t need it…

In my three day workshop I demonstrated five variations and all with only Water Based Ink technology:

1. CMYK on white and light garments
2. Discharge & CMYK on dark garments
3. Under Base White (Khadi) & CMYK on dark garments
4. Discharge & Spot Colour Process
5. Spot colour process on under base white (Khadi)

And on the last day we also demonstrated heat transfers.

DMI_Workshop_20150825-258

All the above mentioned jobs were demonstrated using my separation technique and how one can print continuous tone printing and achieve digital like quality using traditional screen printing method.

Apart from this I also demonstrated many new techniques:


DMI_Workshop_20150825-175
How to mask complicated photos in less than one minute which was highly appreciated by many participant because some said to me that they sometimes spend hours to mask just one image and even then it’s not perfectly masked.

On this 69th Year of Independence are you Independent?

August 15, 2015 3 comments

Indian_Flag_Screen_Printing

Dear Friends,

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…
