The Royal College of Art are heading a collaboration which includes Royal Crown Derby, MZ toners and Digital Ceramic Systems. DCS has supplied ceramic printing technology which is to be used to explore the potentials for scale, economies and a new aesthetic within the UK commercial production for the printed ceramic surface.

DCS will continue to collaborate with this project with the intention of driving this technology to the next level within the industry.

Mugs that Love Your Nation!

Since I last blogged about the Le Bizz shop in West Kirby they have launched a fantastic new range of ‘Love Your Nation’ mugs.

The mugs feature witty phrases identifying places mostly around the local areas of Wirral and Liverpool and now further afield, with requests even from ex pats around the world! Some of the best include phrases such as “West Kirby, Eat Beach Shop Repeat,” and “Wirral, Somewhere Only We Know.”

The collaboration between Steve Ramsay of Le Bizz and graphic designer Rebecca Furlong has been so successful and it is quickly becoming a recognisable brand.

We love working with Steve and Rebecca to produce the mugs, it’s always great to see what new phrases they have come up with! We keep asking when will they start on the Stoke-on-Trent mugs!?

The Liverpool Echo news recently wrote an article about the mugs, see for yourself just how many people have already liked it on Facebook!

Guide to Working with Digital Ceramic Colours

Digital Ceramic printing offers a more cost effective method of ceramic printing for smaller orders. We print using a 4 colour process so unlike screen-printing we do not charge per colour keeping the cost of small print runs down to a minimum. It also means that we can produce samples much cheaper as there is less setup involved!

We offer a broad spectrum of colours across two separate ranges of ceramic colours, a magenta based set of colours (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) and a red based set of colours (cyan, red, yellow and black).

Each colour range has its advantages and disadvantages, the magenta colour set is the most commonly used of the colour ranges:

Advantages
• More options for a vast range of colours overall
• Pinks, blues, greens and purples are bright and deep in colour
Compromises
• Your reds, oranges and yellows won’t appear to be as bright unless you use the red colour set.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The red colour set is essential if any part of the design has any red elements:

Advantages
• Reds, oranges and yellows are extra bright and vibrant
• You’ll achieve a crisp lime green
Compromises

• Pinks and dark blues tend to be less saturated than those achieved with the Magenta Colour Set

Eat Like a King!

Look out for designer Alice Naylor and her  ’Eat Like a King’ set of plates. Digitally printed and decorated by hand here at Digital Ceramics, we were excited when Alice let us know that her plates are featured in the Gourmet supplement of December’s House & Gardens!

The range of Eat My Hat Plates© were inspired by the quote ‘Eat Breakfast Like A King, Lunch Like a Prince and Dinner Like a Pauper.’ The clever design makes you question your portion sizes in a unique quirky way.
