GLIMPSES of DMI’s Workshop on ‘Advanced Screen Printing Process’ (Commercial/graphics/value addition) 12-14 June 2017
I was truly touched when over 40 participants in my recently concluded DMI workshop expressed their gratitude to me in an emotion-filled voice. On behalf of all the participants, Tsukti Longkumer who came all the way from Nagaland, first stood up to convey special thanks to me and my DMI team. Even before he could finish his words, others could not control their feelings and one by one started thankfully expressing their views about my workshop and its benefits. And the photo gallery in the facing page gives the glimpses of the workshop which I conducted on 12-13-14 June 2017.
As I had mentioned earlier in my online blog, for all those packaging product developers or graphic designers who are constantly searching for new innovative ideas in Printing & Packaging, my workshop was an eye opener. In this workshop, I openly demonstrated making of a highly luxury table calendar which encompassed 23 New Creative Ideas in Print Finishing & Special Effects for value addition.
To demonstrate all these 23 effects in just 3 days, I had prepared more than 40+ Screens of different mesh count and thread diameters. We used most of the available UV special effects/varnishes, UV Inks / Solvent Inks / Metallic Inks / Pearl Inks / Spot Colour Inks, in different combinations to create dramatic effects on offset and screen printed jobs on various substrates like costly black paper and foil laminated sheets.
For the first time in DMI, I also demonstrated how to create amazing ‘Black and White’ effect, screen printed on black paper with complex foiling technique without using any kind of dies or templates. I also explained and demonstrated in detail, the technique of stochastic screening to produce MOIRE FREE digital-like quality prints by advanced screen printing process.
Today, I am proud to say that DMI is the only institute in the world where print professionals get a rare chance to learn print finishing and special effects on screen/offset/packaging and also textile screen printing.
Let me tell you that currently screen printing is the only process which can produce that third dimension with minimum investments and maximum returns.
So, if you are in the process of creating or developing new packaging products, brochure, catalogues, books, diaries, flyers, invitation cards, calendars, posters or any type of exclusive graphic prints for your customer, then do visit DMI soon. You will be able to see a large collection of new creative samples produced by DMI’s team.
If you wish to see how to print all these new special effects LIVE, then do subscribe to my Blog (www.bhargav.com) because soon I shall be announcing my next workshop dates on graphics and value addition.
Believe me, just within a week DMI workshop gets completely booked. So, once I announce the next dates, do register quickly before we close the registration.

The moment I reached DMI, I first called up my wife and said: ‘Wow, I have come to a fantastic institute.’ And on day 3, I am going home with full satisfaction. I look forward to come to DMI again because, I for a starter like me it was a complete package theoretically. But to put into practice I would require hands on training.

The print results achieved through stochastic dot/FM Screen technique is an eye opener for the screen printers in India. I would say, the DMI’s educational initiative will drastically change the screen printing scenario in India and will also enable to building smart enterprises in screen printing.

Bhargav Mistry not only taught about advanced screen printing process but also gave lot of tips to run the printing business efficiently.
