Screen Print Supplies UK has always been the friendly help and service on the other end of every inquiry and need.

I am grateful to have such a fantastic support team that helps and encourage me to be a better screen printer .

After two years of printing, I needed some guidance on growing my business and practice,

what items to add to my business to make me more competitive and maximize my time and shirt output.

Screen Printing Supplies UK offer an extensive range of drawing pens for artists, designers and illustrators.

 Pens vary massively and so we hope this guide will help you choose the best one for you.

What is the difference between Sketching Pens and Technical Pens?

There is very little difference between sketching pens and technical pens:

Both tend to have a steel reinforced fibre tip that is very short and stubby,

and both tend to have water-resistant ink in them (there are some exceptions to this rule so it is always worth checking).

The only real difference is that Sketching Pens tend to offer broader nibs that can achieve broader marks.

What is the difference between dye based ink and pigment based ink?

Dyes used in ink are 100% water soluble and so they disperse evenly in the liquid binder that they are held in.

As a result the ink flows exceptionally well, and colours appear more vibrant than pigmented inks.

Pigment particles are suspended in the ink binder and are not water soluble to the same extent as dyes.

Therefore flow is marginalised in comparison to dye based inks, as well as colour vibrancy.

The big advantage with pigment based ink

however is that it possesses much higher lightfastness ratings,

and so work can be put on display without fear of significant fading.

Dye based inks are popular among illustrators and artists

whose work is created with the intention of being reproduced – the colours scan and print exceptionally well.

The pens we sell at Screen Printing Supplies UK are either dye based or pigment based 

please contact us if you need to know which the pen you are interested in is.

The last difference is price – you pay for permanence!

Dye based inks are cheaper than pigment inks because they cost less to manufacture.

Will I be using my pen with other media?

At Screen Printing Supplies UK we sell a selection of both water soluble and waterproof pens.

It is a question of personal choice as to which is best suited for your needs.

Some artists like water soluble pens as they lend interesting effects such as bleeding and smudging when used with watercolour.

Other artists prefer waterproof pens for traditional pen and wash drawings,

with the pen lending solid lines and structure within a composition, and the wash supplying bursts of colour over the top.

Paint Markers such as those offered by Liquitex, Montana, Marabu and Uni are a neat way of applying solid lines of acrylic colour.

The Liquitex and Montana markers follow the same colour chart as the spray paints available in each of the manufacturer’s product lines.

This makes it very easy to use the sprays and the pens at the same time,

adopting a similar approach to a pen and wash artist; the pens can supply lines,

form or structure to a design, and the sprays can supply bursts of colour.

As with any acrylic paint, there is a little drying time,

which can be really useful if you want to blend your colours with your fingers before they dry;

it can also be very irritating if you smudge your marks by accident, so be careful!

Do I need colour?

Traditional fine art drawings tend to use limited colour, so that form and mark making alone can be appreciated.

The Pilot Drawing DR Pens are an example of a traditional black ink drawing pen.

The Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens mimic the traditional hues of the past, inspired by pastels and chalks 

their traditional pen range offers black, sanguine and sepia colours.

Similarly technical draughtsmen such as architects and engineers (of the past!) would not normally need coloured pens to communicate their ideas,

which is why most technical pens are only available with black ink.

Today it is more common for artists to demand colour in their lines, as well as a variety of different marks.

When using coloured pens in your drawings, you need to think about whether you want to make bold, opaque, solid marks (use a paint marker such as Liquitex or Montana)

or transparent marks that can be layered over one another to make new colour mixes (try Faber Castell Brush Pens).

A GUIDE TO DRAWING PENS AVAILABLE AT Screen printing Supplies uk.

Chinese painting style Pens

We sell a selection of bamboo pens.

These primitive pens are made of dried bamboo sticks that are hollow

so that the pen can be dipped into Chinese ink and then dragged across the surface on which you are working.

The lines created with these bamboo pens are expressive and vibrant.

The bamboo pens are best used for relatively short lines

where blotchiness and variation in the width of the line created does no matter too much.

Bamboo pens are wonderful in describing natural forms such as trees, branches or grass.

We sell bamboo pens both with a flat nib and a pointed nib.

The flat nib can be used to make a wider range of marks, but the pointed nib will produce finer marks.

Bamboo pens do not hold a lot of ink and so need frequent dipping 

they are not designed to create long unbroken lines.

Once the ink starts to run out they are capable of making dry, textured marks which can also be very interesting.

They were once also used for Chinese calligraphy. A real gem of a mark-maker.

To complement the staccato marks of the bamboo pen we also sell the Kuretake Bimoji Fude pens –

These have a brush like felt nib that allow for flowing, soft, undulating lines that taper to a fine point.

Also very well suited to Chinese Calligraphy, but with a more flowing decorative quality.

Zig Kuretake H2O Water Brush Pens

[caption id="attachment_7452" align="alignnone" width="300"]Screen Printing Supplies UK, Artist Screen Printing Supplies UK, Artist[/caption]

hese pens have a fibre tip and a clear plastic barrel.

There are a selection of tips, including a detailer tip, flat broad tip, large tip, medium tip and the pocket brush.

These pens are designed to only contain water (fill with other media at your peril, as the pen may clog up).

They are particularly useful when working with water color pencils,

as you can brush water over a colored pencil drawing,

and the colours will suddenly appear more vibrant and blended with one another.

The choice in different sized nibs means that you will not lose any of the detail you may have put in your drawing.

They can also be useful when making a drawing that incorporates ink or watercolour.

Pilot Drawing Pens Screen Printing Supplies UK

Pilot pens have long been a fundamental drawing implement in the studios of many professional draughts men.

They are consistently reliable, with uniform lines and ink that does not clog or blot.

The DR pens have a fibre tip and the ink is pigment based, and fully lightfast.

Once the ink is dry it is highly water – resistant.

Pilot DR Pens are favored for quick observational sketches as well as technical drawings,

and because of the water-resistance they are also well suited to pen and wash work.

Solid Stainless steel  Water Tight  anti splash design.

Made from Type 304L(1.4307) grade of stainless steel most frequently used in the water industry.

Made of stainless steel, highest quality construction.

Designed to allow operators to work in a cleaner and drier environment, this stainless steel washout booth is an affordable option for improving operator safety and cleanliness in the reclaim area.

1) Wet both sides of screen mesh thoroughly with water.

2) Apply degreaser. It is possible to use a dishwashing detergent (like Dawn®) but a
degreaser designed for degreasing silkscreens is best because it will not contain
dyes, perfumes and other things you don’t need (those things can leave residue).
3) Using a scrub brush, (the long bristle kind with a handle is recommended, but
almost any kind will do) methodically scrub the ENTIRE surface area of the mesh,
starting with the inside, or squeegee side, first. A good technique is to start at
the upper left-hand corner, using small, counter-clockwise circular motions and
moving left to right in descending rows towards the lower right-hand corner. Then
do the exact opposite, that is, small, clockwise circles working from the lower right
to upper left corner. Next scrub the mesh horizontally left to right working in rows
from top to bottom; then vertically scrub up and down working in columns from the
left side of the screen to the right. Then scrub the whole screen at approximately a
45 degree angle, switch (90 degrees) and scrub in the opposite direction.

Next go

around the inside (squeegee side) of the frame, one stroke around all four sides
going counter-clockwise, then the same going clockwise. After that, use the exact
same process on the outside (print side) of the screen. Note that the idea here
is to THOROUGHLY clean the mesh and prevent problems. So, although this is
a good technique, it’s fine to use a technique of your own. But you do want to be
methodical about it and degrease every bit of the mesh.
4) After you’ve lathered both sides of the mesh, flip the screen back over and
thoroughly rinse the squeegee side first and then flip and rinse the print side. Rinse
with low water pressure until there are no more “soap” bubbles.
5) Place the screen in a horizontal position to dry (either side up is ok). The screen
should be suspended so that it is supported by the frame and air is allowed to flow
freely over both sides of the mesh. Make sure the mesh is completely dry before

Bank notes and coins
Bank Notes A Banknote is a legal negotiable note which one party can use to pay another party on demand without any interest and is considered as money. They are used for financial transactions happening all over the world. Although the physical goods were replaced by paper money over time and governments started issuing these as an exchange for objects. But the age determines the rarity of banknotes which has become the defining factor of its valuation. As a result, rare banknotes are very precious and sold at a very high price than their own on various market places for collection. Coins Coins are disc-shaped metal-made objects used as a form of money or as an alternative to banknotes for small purposes. Earlier the value was considered from the intrinsic value of the metal from which coins were made of. But at present, the value is decided by the state and use as flat money. As time passes, old coins have become very valuable for collection and as a result, they are s
