Looking to get into family business

Posted on Sun, 14 Nov 2004 at 15:39



Hi!

My husband is an outstanding artist and has ideas for shirts. It gets pricey paying other printers to do it for us, so I was wondering if it would be a good idea if I learned how to do screen printing myself? I was also interested in it being a small business I would operate, while printing his shirts. How would I get started in learning? Is there schools that offer this, or how did everyone learn? Thanks!

Hi, depending on where you are in the world there are several places to look for taking classes. One is Scott Fresner's class from the screen printing institute.Very professional but costly. If you live near Charlotte,NC there are classes my company gives every other month on for start -up shops and other points of the screen printing proccess. We also offer tech support over the phone. We even have Chemist that you can talk to for technical ink questions if needed. So even if your not close to come to the class we can help you get started in other ways. Send me an email to get more info and I can even send you some catalogs and things to help you guys get more ideas on what it takes.

Screen printing does require a lot of work, there are many stages to the process, it requires a dedicated space, and if you are not doing large runs of the shirt you speak of I would not recomend just getting in to screen printing. Shirts are cheap, at least in Ca. Until it is huge, over 144 shirts at time, just have them done.
