I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to learn how to screen print. I’ve always had a passion for making art so naturally sharing that art on t-shirts always seemed like a cool idea. Well, I’m finally going to learn and I’m super pumped! I purchased a DIY screen printing kit from Ryonet Corporation last night on Amazon and can’t wait to get my hands dirty! Since I know almost nothing about screen printing I’ve been doing a little research and came across this infograph which describes the process quite well so I figured I’d share.
Attribution for this infograph goes to ShirtSpace.com.
The main reason I purchased this kit is to help me make my wooden signs faster, or at least I’m hoping it’s faster. I’m signed up as a vendor at a huge show coming up at the end of March and need to get a major amount of signs made. In the past, I’ve used several methods including image transfer using chalk and then painting (Creative Green Living has a good article explaining the chalk transfer method) and stenciling/painting but both are time consuming and I just don’t feel I can get enough done so I’m going to try screen printing and see how it works out. I’ll be sure to let you all know!
Do you have any experience with screen printing? If so, let me know below. Any tips or ideas are appreciated!
