Our art room can create design originals and translate and develop your creative concepts into a printable format. We’re even able to take iconic old screen-prints and digitally remaster the colour and design to produce exquisite new digital silks or add a new dimension to a golden oldie. Designers need to be able to depend on a reproducible colour palette. In digital, we dare to think red not orange and we think blue not purple.
