Post image for Screen Print: The Ultimate Guide. Now for sale!

I’m happy to be able to offer you all the advice I needed but never had when I set up my home based print studio. I once had a beautiful loft studio with a yardage production table and a $10,000 exposure unit but when it can time to fit these things into a MUCH smaller home studio I couldn’t. So I was forced to figure out how I would continue to produce professional quality screen prints in a home studio. That’s what this book is all about- and it will teach you everything I know about how to screen print. You’ll learn how to build a screen, coat, expose and print an image. You’ll also learn how to do repeating patterns and so much more! This $4.97 will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars and get you earning money fast. Buy the E-book now.

Here are some screen shots from the e-book.
