The Thermofax Screens business started in 2006 offering an affordable alternative to photo-emulsion silk screens.
Thermofax Screens is operated by three textile artist, Christine, Christina and Sarah.
Christine has been selling her designs through the Thermofax Screens website for some time and can often be found travelling the country teaching paper lamination using these and other ready made thermal screens. Christina is a graphic designer with a strong pedigree of using her own unique designs in complex collages. Sarah has also used thermal screens when teaching and now incorporates her own designs and mark making experiments into screens to be used with her work.
Thermofax Screens has always been web based and the company now sends screens, inks and squeegees around the world to artists, students and anyone for whom thermal screens offer a solution to their printing needs. The business has expanded beyond textiles as the screens can be used on paper and many other surfaces and now there are embroiderers, ceramicists, stained glass artists and enamellers all using thermal screens in their own way!
