SCREEN PRINTING E-BOOKS

AND DOWNLOADABLE PDF’S

LOVING WHAT WE DO SINCE 2013

Screenprinting is awesome but we know that it can be tricky to get set up.  We continue to build a library of e-books and handy downaloadable PDF’s to guide you – remember, there’s no use crying over spilt ink!

PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE

The resources we have put together come from research and more importantly tried and tested methods we use in our own shop.  We screen print every day and are handing over our best charts and cheat sheets to speed up your workflow. 

TECHNIQUE

As we continue to develop our techniques and as new products come on the market, we will continue to review them for you.  Here you can find our shopping lists and favoruite brands and more importantly how to use them in your own business.

SCREEN PRINT TUTORIAL VIDEOS

Because seeing is believing  finaling understanding what the hell to do!

If there is a screen printing topic you need to understand quickly, a PDF might not cut it.  So we have filmed a series of videos to walk you through a range of scenarios to help you.  These will be part of an ever growing library from coating and exposing screens to understanding the difference between plastisol and waterbased.

EXPERIENCE

We are building up a library of instructional videos to show you how to print, cure and have a good time screen printing.  All backed up from our own experiences of being proffessional printers.  

EDUCATION

Knowledge about this craft can either be learnt by your own experiences and trial and error, or through learning from our resources.   We troubleshoot the process in our videos to fast track your printing.

Squeegee & Ink are the best! I did my print work shop with Chessie and Em a few years ago and I now print my own shirts at home. They are so helpful and really quick to respond when you need advice or help with printing.
Their screens are amazing quality and the service is the best.
