Workhorse Offers Two-Day July Workshop

June 24, 2015

Workhorse Products, Phoenix, will host a beginner’s workshop July 25-26 on how to start a T-shirt screen-printing business.

Held at the company’s facility in Phoenix, this hands-on class will be taught by Terry Combs, a 30-year veteran screen printer and educator.

Day one will begin with an explanation of what a screen is and, by the end of the second day, all attendees will have pulled a squeegee and printed a full-color simulated-process design on a black shirt. Students also will degrease and coat a screen, set up a multicolor job, and learn about printing plastisol transfers, specialty inks, art preparation and more.

In addition to the technical aspects of screen printing, Combs also will cover how to start a business, find customers and other day-to-day business topics.

The class runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The cost is $395 for the first student and $195 for additional students from the same company. Workhorse is located at 3730 East Southern Ave.
