    I made my first attempt at silk screening t-shirts. The results weren't that good, but they'll be better next time. Here's a picture of the results.

    I printed about 12 shirts up, so if anyone wants one, stop by the tailgater at the donkeys game.

    I don't know if I'm going to the 105.3 rally on Thursday, butI'm going to the Scott & BR thing at 5am on Friday for sure. I think I'm going to wear on of these shirts I just made.

    I need to stress, this was my very first attempt at silk screening. I know I can do much better.

    Thumper, have you considered heat transfers? It would be WAY more cost effective for a short run, would look cleaner, and would be an all around better solution IMO. If you want more info, let me know and I will PM you my contact info. We can get together this afternoon if you like.

    It's my understanding that heat transfers don't work well on dark colored shirts. I'd love to talk to you about it, because you know way more on this subject than I do.

    I'm also making these with the screening technique because I want to learn how to do it. If I can get good enough, I'd like to make much larger runs. 200 to 500 shirts at a time. Only if I get good enough.

    My next run I'm going to try and make the screen with a photo emulsion technique. This first time I manually made the screen by painting the negative areas.

    Next time I need to use a more opaque ink. Screen printing is kinda fun, and if I ever get it right, I'll save a lot of money over what I'm paying to have t-shirts made.

    I'll be there in the morning also. I'll bring you some bourbon. We can talk about printing techniques there.
