Screen printing is easy money with GOCCOPRO


Q) How can screen printing create easy money for my business?

A) We get to see and visit lots of businesses who are all supplying printed garments to their customers. It’s amazing how every business has built up their customers in a style or format they are comfortable with. So the work you do fits with your own skill/s or comfort zone. If its easy for you to do the job you take more jobs like that, if its a pain you don’t. GOCCOPRO creates easy money because you can now be a traditional screen printer in an afternoon. It’s that easy.

  • Get customers artwork.
  • Send to screen maker.
  • Stretch screen.
  • Print.
  • Tidy by putting excess ink back in the tub and binning the screen.
  • Job done. You then have 20 finished T shirts, from customer’s artwork. The customer then picks up in one hour.


The cost of printing these 20 T shirts will be one hour of your time plus 30p of ink, plus £6 for your screen. That’s 31.5 p per T shirt.
If you want to print 100 T shirts the costs get even better. £1.50 for your ink, £6 for your screen,  that’s £7.50 plus two hours of your time as everything is already set up. So your T shirt print costs is now, 7.5p each.
You can see how screen printing can make easy money.

Q) Which type of garment decorators are taking advantage of this system?

A) Companies that vinyl cut see massive advantages in having a screen print system especially for jobs that are very difficult to weed.

GOCCOPRO UK - Stage and Hen t-shirts

Here we show how easy it is to  print a Stag or Hen party t-shirt if you have a GOCCOPRO. Take the picture drop it into a template and print your digital silk screen its that easy.

Take a photograph, convert it, make your screen, printed the t-shirt all done in under 7 minutes. I'm sure you'll agree that is seriously quick,

So Its quick its easy but the bit i like the best is the quality. because a GOCCOPRO burns its image into the screen at 600dpi you can get really fine detail. This detail can be fine lines or even better grey scales. If you have a 30% grey scale in your design the screen master will have 30 present of the coating burnt away in the form of tiny holes. This only allows ink to pass through the tiny holes giving you a 30% coverage of ink onto the garment.


For more information on the GOCCOPRO go to our web site www.goccopro.co.uk or call us on 0131 654 4304. You can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram

Screen-Printing Made Easy with the GOCCOPRO

Q) The title suggests this screen-printing is easy, Why?

A) Traditional Screen printers served an apprenticeship so there was a large amount of knowledge and skill required. There were several reasons for this and the GOCCOPRO eliminates these skills that were requires. The first part of screen-printing is making the screen, which involves coating a mesh, exposing the image and washout with chemicals. There are quite a few steps that take a lot of time, space and there can be slip ups or mishaps at each stage. This is the messy part that puts people off before you have even started printing, which is the fun part.

The GOCCOPRO does away with this first screen creating stage saving the operator a large amount of time. It then skips all of the messy troublesome bits. It de-skills this first step and at the same time increases the quality of screen produced. Within an hour anyone can be printing an amazingly detailed digital image that previously would have been a impossible for the traditional screen-printer.

Our screens will change the perception of screen-printing and customers will expect to be able to get high definition amazing half tones and far more complicated artwork. This is really what makes the GOCCOPRO so exciting

Q) Do you still require a level of skill to print even with your easily made screens?

A) I would say you do need a level of skill but you can pick this up very quickly with a little practice and you are learning the fun part knowing that your screen is perfect.

A BETTER INSIGHT INTO SCREEN-PRINTING WITH THE GOCCOPRO

Printwear and Promotion Magazine asked Derek Muller of GOCCOPRO UK some questions about screen printing in the world today. We will show some exerts over the coming months.

Q) So Derek what first attracted you to becoming the UK distributor for the GOCCOPRO, an area of business you have not really been involved in before?

A) That's is a good question and I realize that today I would have the same answer now as I would when I started 3 years ago. I love its simplicity, I love its user friendly ness, I love the exceptionally quick turn around times, I love the efficiency of the whole system, I love how easy it is to create additional revenue and I love how a complete screen printing novice like me can print amazing quality images with just 10 minutes training.

What I didn’t realize was how the screen-printing business has become so entrenched in its ways. The need for large block solids simple silhouette images is what customers expect to see when screen-printing. This is because the original way screens are made can only make screens like this, unless you have an expensive screen making set up. This has a great look and is very much a style all of its own but with a GOCCOPRO you can really change the type of artwork you print. You can give your customers so much more

What is surprising is even when customers have a ground breaking system for screen-printing they tend to print traditional artwork.

Q) What would you like to see.

A) I would love to see more interesting GOCCOPRO halftone screen-printing out there that really makes you say wow! We have tried to make a few simple videos that show just what can be done Check them out HERE and then show us what you can do

ARTIST SCREEN PRINTED T-SHIRTS YOU CAN PRODUCE SO EASILY

We are very lucky to work with some fantastic artists and this image was created by Laetitia Guilbaud. For the t-shirt we seperate out the colours onto three layers and turned all the colour blocks to black. We ensured the final layer of black overlapped the lighter colours. This is a great looking t-shirt, but I think I may change up the colours. Setting up the three screens delivered from the GOCCOPRO was easy and the complete set up took around 20 minutes. Hope it shows just what can be done.


 


If you have a great bit of artwork you think would look good on a T-shirt please get in touch with us as we may print a few just for you!............Oh and also some samples for us.
