500 Hand Screen Printed Magazine Covers

Colormaker Industries, the Australian manufacturer of PERMASET Inks, proudly collaborated on production of the cover of Print Isn’t Dead, a screen printing quarterly publication of the London based community of creatives, People of Print.

A total of 500 covers were produced, each painstakingly and individually screen printed by the exceptionally talented Heretic Spectral Nation Printmakers, who were also responsible for the eye-catching design.  The covers feature layer upon layer of creative visual elements that embody the continually evolving art of print, and of course, are all printed in a vibrant range of PERMAPRINT Premium and AQUATONE water-based inks.

People of Print were thrilled to have partnered with the Heretic trio on this project, as the trio has shown through their extensive body of work a unique artistic style, vision and masterful printing skills which set them apart from many other screen printers in the industry.

Eco-friendly Screen Printing Inks for Paper

In order to fully achieve the trio’s artistic vision, it was only natural for People of Print to select PERMASET’S  PERMAPRINT Premium® and AQUATONE® Ink ranges for paper and other substrates, which are archival quality inks that not only provide superior performance and colour brightness, but they are also manufactured using 100% renewable energy.  These eco-friendly Ink ranges contain absolutely no ozone-depleting chemicals, volatile solvents, heavy metals or other toxic chemicals and are phthalate free.

The modern covers were printed in a number of different colourways and the result was absolutely fantastic, and definitely gave the magazine a unique and sophisticated look. For a sneak peak of how these amazing covers were printed, click here.  The magazine featured some great content on Kickstarter, Suicide Girls, Icon Printing, 60s counterculture, Oz Magazines and a whole lot more.

Screen Printing: Alive and Kicking!

This partnership with People of Print has not only reaffirmed PERMASET’S place as a leading provider of high quality, eco-friendly textile inks, but has also strengthened our belief in the continuity of screen printing. With People of Print continually seeking out talented and creative individuals and publishing new and inspiring trends in the world of screen printing, we have no doubt that screen printing will continue to thrive well into the future.
