    There`s a really cool guy who runs a business called CREATURE T-SHIRTS, he`s a talented artist, wildlife rescuer, snake guy and screen printer. He also has a YouTube page at http://www.youtube.com/user/billflowers where you can see lots of his wildlife, screenprinting advice, etc. Worth a look.

    I would totally screen-print my own t-shirts if I had any creativity. As it is, I`d probably rip-off so many webcomics, it wouldn`t even be funny.

    Same here. I`m not creative enough to come up with my own designs, I`d probably be ripping off all sorts of images from deviantart.

    Ok, I used to do screen printing. 1)a 110 mesh screen isnt always the best. It depends on what color ink ur using 2) its better to coat both sides. It`ll give u a crisper image and help prevent pinholes. 3)Never use the sun, u`ll over expose like 99% of the time 4)You need to make sure the screen is dry after washing it out otherwise ull get water marks in the mesh and can creating small mistakes in the print 5)U dont want to leave the shirt under the flash dryer for too long, it will burn the shirt 6)you need diff mesh screens for diff garments i.e. bags, jackets, wood printing and diff types of ink depending on the texture of the garments.

    I also noticed they failed to mention how to actually transfer the image properly. You need a certain film/velum paper and a printer that can print on it.

    Now go screen print the right way bitches

    Damn, that emulsion is SO much better than the kind we used at the highschool. Ours took a power-washer to get the non-exposed emulsion off.

    Or you could save $100 and a lot of time and buy an actual good shirt. I did that in High School and each and every single shirt that everyone did in the class was pure crap. Plus the stuff flakes off after a while.

    We`ve got so much wolf gear we`re just ready to start up a... ...a gay bar...

    Interesting, i suppose it`s useful, well done considering, that`s surely all it needs to be a good video... Except for the whole obvious point that... well... it`s hard to say just one... let`s just say the idea needed work...

    why don`t you just use iron-on transfers? That`s waaaay easier.
