BARNSLEY, England — May 3, 2018 — MagnaColours® is pleased to announce it will be attending FESPA Global Print Expo which will take place from May 15-18, 2018. The event brings together leading brands, printers and manufacturers from throughout the digital and screen-printing industry.
At the show, Magna will be taking part in the Print Make Wear fashion textile feature, with live screen-printing demonstrations using its water-based, environmentally sensitive inks throughout the week.
Print Make Wear will allow collaborators from all corners of the industry the chance to see a live production environment, demonstrating each step in the screen and digital textile production process, from design and printing through to finished garment and accessories.
During the screen-printing demonstrations, Magna will be showcasing its new MagnaPrint® EDGE ink, developed to enable the printing of multicolored designs on to light or dark colored garments, whether wet or dry, without the need for numerous flash units in-between. A selection of Magna’s ever-expanding range of special effects inks will also be showcased on striking artwork by printmaker and designer Sanna Annuka, commissioned for the feature by FESPA.
Helen Parry, managing director, MagnaColours®, said: “The FESPA Global Print Expo is an exciting event, and we were delighted to be approached by FESPA to showcase our water-based inks at the Print Make Wear feature. The cutting-edge technology in printing will be on display, including our high-performance, PVC and formaldehyde free inks, recognising the advances of water-based inks for screen-printing in recent years.”
MagnaColours® will also continue to promote its new Make the Switch program, launched in 2018 and designed to help screen-printers to eliminate harmful, plastisol inks, and make the switch to using environmentally sensitive water-based products.
