Ryonet Announces July, August Screen Print Experience Classes
Ryonet, Vancouver, Wash., is offering screen-printing classes helmed by industry veterans in a real shop.
The two-day sessions will be held from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and lunch will be provided. Beginners will be instructed on the step-by-step screen-printing process, from creating artwork to catching a shirt as it comes off the dryer.
The course will start by discussing prepress and dark-room topics, covering basic artwork and color separations; film-output options; choosing an emulsion and coating a practice screen; using a preregistration template; burning a screen; screen-washout techniques; related software programs and cleanup.
Hands-on printing using plastisol, water-based and specialty inks for spot color, four-color process, simulated process and foil applications also will be covered by the curriculum.
Along with this information and a Ryonet screen-printing class book, the admission fee includes a variety of printable shirts, such as tri-blends, 100% cotton and polyester, provided by BELLA + CANVAS, Next Level Apparel, Hanes and JERZEES.
