QUESTION

Posted on Sat, 25 Dec 2004 at 1:31



I MAKE SKATEBOARDS AND I WANT TO START ADDING GRAPHICS TO MY BOARDS. AND ITS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT SCREENPRINTING IS THE BEST TO DO THE GRAPHICS ON SKATEBOARDS. I'M NEW TO SCREEN PRINTING, AND DON'T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN NOR HOW TO. ANY SUGGESTIONS ON ANY STARTING KITS, OR GOOD TUTORIAL WEB SITES, MUCH WOULD APPRECIATED.
HOPE SOME CAN HELP

Suggestion...if you don't know anything about the process, go visit a local screenprinter. that is a good start. Don't waste $$$ on kits.

You'll find many entries at this website on the various threads. You'll find that screenprinting for skateboards is a bit different than for t-shirts or graphics and is a little specialized in the substrates and inks that are used.
Expect to have to learn quite a bit to actually produce any quantity for sale. You should really find, like Andy suggests, someone who is already producing screen printing specifically for skate boards and learn from them.
If your in a geographic area that doesn't present this option, stike up a correspondence with someone posting here that is doing it now and who will be willing to show you how.

Good Luck
