Printink Studio is offering table hire of their screen printing tables on a half or full day basis. Table hire will be based on 2, 5, 10 or 20 metres. Suitable for artists, desingers, makers and existing labels and brands.
Printink Studio is dedicated and focuses on the artisanal skill of hand screen printed textiles. The Studio is located in the creative hub of Collingwood and easy access to the all the local cafe, smith/gertrude streets and public transport.
Our studio comprises of 2 x 22 metre long screen printing tables. They are felt top tables wth a primed canvas stretching over the top (fabrics are stapled to the table). The tables have a rail along one edge, which have removeable stops so that you can print meterage fabrics.
There are communal tables and chairs for use alongside your screen printing table space. There is also a 3 metre cutting table for garment and fabric cutting, a large lightbox, cutting mats, rulers etc.... these items can all be used as part of the table hire.
Printink Studio is 100%.... water base inks only (no plastisol inks, solvents, dyestuffs etc)
There is a wash trough so that you can wash out your screen and ample of drying spaces for the screens to dry. We can also expose screens in house, however this is an additonal fee and something that can be worked out in person.
We have a specific area for mixing colour, with bowls and spatulas for you to use. There is also measuring scales down to .01 gram and larger ones for measuring kilos. Ink will be supplied by yourselves, however you will be able to purchase from us if need be (advance notice will need to be arrange prior). We also have the Permaset Ink which uses the Pantone Coated matching system.
The Studio itself has lots of light, and when the sun is shining its fantastic. However on grey days it can be slightly dull. Also winter can be a little chilly, so dress appropriately.
You will need to provide your own screens, however on prior arrangement we can organise this for you.

Table Hire of the studio is by the metre, either 2, 5, 10 or 20 metres. With the table hire comes basic use of the studio facilities as well.
Hiring of the studio will be based on either 4 hourly or daily rates.
As the studio is a working business under Printink Studio, studio hire will only have access to the public a couple days a week. Again this is dependent on the studios workload and what is going on. Some weeks could have 4 day access and others only 1 day.
Heat setting of fabric can also be done in house, but this will be and additonal fee on discussion.
There is 2 x carparks in front of building that is unlimited (first in best dressed). Otherwise there is ample parking on streets @ 4 hours.
