Screen Printing Projects to Embrace the UK Summer
in Permaset Blog28 Aug 2017 | 0 Comments
Across the United Kingdom we are savouring the last few weeks of the warmer weather before we head into autumn, and there’s no better excuse to break open your brightest screen printing inks. Check out these summer-inspired screen printing projects while the weather is still great.
Screen print your own swimwear
Why not, when Permaset Aqua inks are ideal and safe for printing on Lycra and swimwear? This water based screen printing ink doesn’t crack or warp like plastisol inks can so you can be confident printing on a good quality item. Choose your favourite summer design, then create a single print or repeated pattern on your one-piece maillot or bikini.

Print your own tank top or t-shirt
You know the saying – suns out, guns out. Now’s the perfect opportunity to create a new tank top design or t-shirt design in cool cotton. With the Premier League season upon us, we couldn’t think of a better way to support your team with a clever design. Or, embrace the last of the summer festivals with a cool t-shirt or dress design.
Screen print outside (while you can)
We love screen printing outside – it helps your screens dry quicker and a clothesline can be invaluable in drying prints in between colour changes. While the weather is still great, bring your kit outside and soak up the warmth while you get creative. Just remember to keep your screens flooded in between prints to keep your water based ink from drying out too fast.
Block Printing with found objects
Your screen printing inks aren’t just limited to screen printing – you can also use them for block printing with simple found objects. Experiment with summery cut citrus like lemons and oranges, ice creams, leaves and rocks or pebbles from the beach, printing in loud colours like yellows, reds and blues.
Capture the warm weather in a poster
Don’t want summer to leave your house? It doesn’t need to. Head to your nearest park and sketch up a summery design, then print it up in bright and vibrant Permaprint Premium inks for printing on posters and other substrates. You’ll have a slice of summer in your house even when the weather turns glum. If you need inspiration, look at the icons of your UK summer, such as picnic essentials, sunglasses, ice cream and the beach.
