The M&R Group of Companies, KIWO, MagnaColors, Newman Roller Frames, and GSG (Graphic Solutions Group) are the sponsors of the upcoming water-based printing seminar to be held on 10-12 July 2018.

The two-day workshop will cover topics such as screen making, composition & curing, low solids & medium solids, discharge printing, hands-on press demonstrations, high solids, migration eliminators, special effects and more. The coursework is designed to share the experience and knowledge of the B-Unlimited team with a hands-on journey through the world of water-based screen printing.
B-Unlimited caters to around 200 college campuses across USA. Being centrally located, they have lot of flexibility to deliver products in a timely manner. Although they are focused on ‘Custom Collegiate Apparel’, they also specialize in many other products. At B-Unlimited they use eco-friendly water-based inks.
“We are passionate about what inks we use and how they affect you, our printers, and our planet. Water-based ink means no need for solvent-based printing systems, reducing the risk of harmful chemicals to our health and the environment. When you use water based ink, the ink becomes part of the fabric and the print feels as soft as the shirt it’s printed on. Fabric soaks up the ink and the design will last as long as the shirt does, resulting in a valuable product that stands the test of time. The design will be as breathable as the shirt, making it much more comfortable especially in sweaty situations,” says Ben Clark, CEO of the company.
In 1994 B-Unlimited began as a screen printing company in the hills of the Ozark Mountains in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Its current owner, Ben Clark, bought the business in 2006 with big dreams of custom art, quality product and impeccable customer service. The economic crisis of 2009 forced B-Unlimited to a point of transition, and began to focus on it’s main and only customer, a sorority at the University of Arkansas. With his only designer & illustrator, Ben Strawn, they managed to capture more and more Greek groups across the UofA campus. The organisation has been honing skills in artwork, printing, and friendliness. With the combination of amazing custom artwork and the digital boom of 2011, B-Unlimited started to gain traction across the nation and recognition for being one of the best sources to get custom artwork on any garment possible. With 60+ employees, in-house screen printing, embroidery equipment, art team, and production team B-Unlimited continue to Dream Big.
