A while back my beau and I launched a limited edition series of custom “I (heart)” organic tote bags & t-shirts as Dahl & Dane. The project proved to be quite successful, we were absolutely swamped with orders, and up to our ears in screen-printing madness. Currently we’re on hiatus from screen-printing mania, designing a new line I’ve mentioned in the past, but every once in a while I’ll get a very sweet email from someone who absolutely will die if they can’t get one of our custom pieces. So I really can’t say No…

So today I created a Screen Printing 101 Tutorial for those with the desire to make some of their own surface design work. Before you get going on your screen-printing ride, I recommend you visit this website for a breakdown on how to prepare a Photo Emulsion Screen for printing. Photo emulsion screens have the finest detail attainable. One can also make a print by using contact paper, block ink or stencils. This website takes you through some more options.
