In the studio: Why we use Eco Friendly Inks

We hand screen print all of our clothing and packaging ourselves right here in our studio in Whitby, North Yorkshire.

We made the decision when we started Art Disco to only use eco-friendly water based inks.

Most commercial screen printers use plastisol inks, which contain PVC and phthalates that are harmful to the environment. The water-based inks we use do not contain any toxic chemicals at all.

Water-based inks are more expensive and also much trickier to work with. It took us a lot of practise but we feel that it is most definitely worth it!
