Women entrepreneurs take part in DMI's workshop on advanced screen printing

We are into handmade paper bags, packaging, gifts, and stationery. We have observed that our screen printing is facing two critical problems, lack of knowledge in advanced screen printing and non availability of skilled labour. We were also not able to reproduce colors perfectly with clarity. So, in DMI workshop we could empower ourselves with the latest knowledge in screen printing, learn right procedure of screen making, techniques of UV special effects. We learnt various new technical jargons related to advanced screen printing such 'linearization', 'FM screening', 'UV special effects', 'exposure calculator' 'color separation'. One important lesson that we are taking back is the use of yellow light in screen making department and use of yellow polyester mesh which we did not know earlier. We have also understood that we should never compromise on quality for which we need to use QC tools and quality raw materials. We will start implementing some of the lessons that we learnt in DMI workshop. Interestingly, we also got a tip that 'serigraphy' (art reproduction) is the next big promising area in screen printing. We are thankful to DMI for educating the screen printers in advanced screen printing which is so vast subject.
