This course was designed by one of the most noted efficiency and standards master-minds and overall authorities in the industry.

Hands-on immersion in every aspect of screen printing

The reason we keep class sizes very small is because each student gets the opportunity to carry out each stage of the process. By the end of the course you will know exactly what to to do and what products to use each step of the way.

Build a firm foundation - bypassing the pain, struggle and frustration

This screen printing class is not basic, intermediate or advanced...It is a cornucopia of technical knowledge covering foundational basics to necessary advanced, professional level content.

  • Drying, quality control, and avoiding mistakes

Students will review the demands the print process has on artwork, plus basic tips and tricks to make your artwork easier to print. We will also help you make decisions and identify essential equipment, software, inks, screens and chemicals.

Remove the roadblocks to your success

If you have been printing for many years you are obviously getting the job done, but how efficiently and pain-free is your business running? Is there room for improvement? Saving time on just a few aspects or doing things better can give you a crucial advantage over the competition.
