One of the biggest questions surrounding is: it is eco-friendly? While the standard technique might not be, there are options which make screen printing incredibly good for the environment. Find out moreWhen it comes to screen printing ink, there are two different types of inks that can be used: plastisol ink and water-based ink. Plastisol is the industry standard and the default ink used by commercial printers. It uses a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base, as opposed to water-based ink, which is exactly what its name suggests, a water-based ink with pigments suspended within it. The limitation associated with water-based inks is that you can not print onto dark coloured garments, but they are excellent for printing vibrant colours onto lighter coloured garments.Furthermore, the print result is affected by the colour of the garment. For example, using a purple coloured shirt may change the appearance of the ink colour. Water-based inks also do not work well on all materials and are better suited for shorter run orders. For printing soft prints onto dark coloured garments there is a screen printing technique that uses discharge water-based inks.

Christmas wouldn’t be the same if Christmas jumpers didn’t exist. As important as Santa Claus, some might say. Create your own personalised jumper and be ready to finally make an impact this Christmas Jumper Day!

3. You have a constant mental countdown

You know exactly how many days until Christmas. Whether you check an online Clock like this one or simply follow a good old calendar, it is essential to keep count! You can always visit this website to reassure if it is Christmas or not.

4. You have watched all the Jamie Oliver Christmas specials

If someone loves Christmas more than you, this is Jamie Oliver. He even does a special show to honour the festive period! Make sure you watch them all. Every year.

5. You buy and religiously follow an advent calendar

By the end of November you’ll see every supermarket displaying a bunch of appealing and colourful advent calendars. Pick your favourite treat and be ready to start on 1st of December. One a day, no cheating!

6. You do your shopping in November to avoid the Christmas frenzy

If you want to save yourself a bit of money and avoid the Christmas madness in every city centre, shop ahead! You’ll find lower prices and you’ll make sure the sizes or product you are after does not run out. Make sure you hide your presents properly so they don’t get found earlier than expected!

7. You plan Christmas presents all-year round

It is essential to keep great ideas on paper. We don’t want you getting your Dad socks (again), so keep your ideas fresh all-year round and you’ll maximise the options to come up with a brilliant gift that they’ll love. If not, you can always get socks.

8. You secretly listen to Christmas songs all year

Because is never too early for a good Christmas tune. What do Michael Bublé & Mariah Carey do the rest of the year anyway?

9. You watch the same Christmas film every year

Because Christmas would not be Christmas without Home Alone (we’ll let you pick which one), Love ActuallyA Wonderful Life or even Elf. We all have a favourite Christmas film and the festive season is the perfect time of the year to grab a blanket, hot chocolate and cuddle up while watching one of the Xmas classics.
