    Hi ive recently invested myself in a screen printing setup but I have trouble washing my screens out after I burn them.

  7. Business and Finance
    So long story short, I've been selling some shirts as print on demand/pre-order online for a couple of years as a hobby(not a lot, just some okay side income since I've been dealing with a medical condition for that last 2 1/2 years that still limits me a bit) and want to try to grow the...
  8. Heat Press and Heat Transfers
    First time poster here, at my wits end trying to find what I'm looking for and am hoping someone here might be able to help.

  9. T shirt Printing Issues
    I have a C711 Wt, and I'm running PS, trying to figure out how to set things for adding white only where the design calls for it.

    I am a Mac user and graphic designer that uses Adobe photoshop and illustrator. I’m finding out that I need a windows device for the rip software.

  14. Screen Printing
    I know once mixed, the ink has a shelf life of a few hours. But does the powder itself have a shelf life? I’ve been having some issues with my discharge ink as of recent. Discharge powder is a couple years old.
