Laying down the first layers of ink for the t-shirts
Pulling white through after registering and fixing little issues.
It’s great to have two people to print shirts- one to keep hands clean and apply good pressure, and one to align and pull the prints
Here’s Hilary adding more ink to the black screen – good to keep it inky and avoid any potential mishaps from running out of ink in certain parts of the design
A little preview of some of the participants shirts
White/black – pretty standard for t-shirts
A fresh product
Here’s a nice shot of aligning the shirts to the design – registration
Our little hint at where the shop is located
Here’s Kate printing with some teamwork help – we were using Gold which wasn’t working very well for us.
Here’s me adding into the screen that we printed stickers from
After most of our shirts were done – we ate pizza. glorious, glorious pizza.
Sometimes, especially with the gold – we had to do some touch ups. When you don’t have the perfect brush, a pencil eraser is a great touch up substitute.
And this is what our t-shirt rig set up looks like.
Earlier today, Minneapolis Pizza Club met for a few hours to learn the basics of screenprinting, print t-shirts, hoodies, tanktops, and stickers, and eat some pizza. This was such a blast. If you’re interested in hosting a similar workshop or participating in one – let us know. Approx cost: $15 per person/+ cost of shirts. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re interested in a pizza club t-shirts, new company NICE LAKES will be launching them on their website this month (stay tuned)- or you can e-mail email@example.com – or you can follow pizza club at https://www.facebook.com/mplspizzaclub. These designs were created by Paige Guggemos of Lazy Geometry, who also taught this class. Thank you to all of the participants, and a special thanks to Mike for documenting the process, and thanks to Kate for making this cool vine video:
