After the labels were designed, I wanted to prove that they can be printed in a number of different mediums so I chose a particularly tricky one: screen printing. The letters and lines had to be adjusted to work in the lower resolution of this printing method, and to minimize damage to legibility from ink flooding. Pictured are the coasters blanks before having their edges cut and sanded into ovals.
The screen printing was done with the help and guidance of the lovely and talented Jan who generously lent me her studio and expertise.
The labels were first printed on a label printer with each intended colour separate. The sheets were then wiped with baby oil to make them semi-transparent and the image was transferred to the screen by hardening exposed sections with UV light. The unexposed goo was then washed off, the inks were mixed and the designs were hand-screened onto coaster card and label papers!
