Printing business

Postby carolynW » Thu, 01 Jan 2009 12:55 am

Is anyone in the printing business or knows if singapore has printers that can print on rice paper? I am looking to reproduce copies of my granddad's paintings (from rice paper) onto rice paper. I know the technology exists in Hong Kong but would like to find a singapore printer.

Thanks

also you can contact me on carolynw@huangyao.org

Too expensive look to China or Taiwan most of the best printers are German or from Europe anyway, so imported machines which they are, will cost much more. Singapore is not the best place for printing materials.

I think you'll have to have the job screen printed due to the make up of the paper. Litho or digital would probably noit be what you want and large format or inkjet will probably make the ink "spread" which will look awful.

Screen printing is very expensive to do so be warned and I don't know any local companies I'm afraid.
Don't p*ss me off! I am running out of places to hide the bodies.
