Ryonet Announces September, October Screen Print Experience Classes

July 17, 2018

Ryonet, Vancouver, Wash.,is offering screen-printing classes guided 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 class 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; and related software programs and cleanup.

Hands-on printing using plastisol, water-based and specialty inks for spot-color, four-color process and simulated process printing, 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.
