Eco-Friendly Screen Printing
Nomadic Stars is one of only a few shops in Alaska to offer water-based screen printing and the first full scale eco-friendly screen print shop in Alaska.
Most screen print companies use plastisol inks that contain PVC and pthalates that are harmful to the environment and have been linked to numerous medical disorders. Plastisol inks also require the use of harmful solvents in the cleaning process. Our inks do not contain ozone depleting chemicals, lead or any heavy metals. In fact, our inks do not contain any toxic chemicals at all! That makes us the safe choice for the environment, and clothing for people of all ages.
