Just wanted to introduce myself. Ed is my name and I've been screen printing since 1981. I have a small one man operation that pays the bills while I can still raise and watch my kids grow up while the wife is working at her job. Hopefully I can help anyone with questions about screen printing in the small shop scenario or just tell a joke or two.

Hi Ed, welcome to the T-Shirt Forums!

while I can still raise and watch my kids grow up while the wife is working at her job.
Sounds like we're in a similar situation :)

Cool Rodney. We will have to get a dialogue going. It is always nice to talk with another ink distribution technologist.

Thanks Nick. How is it down under? Winter time isn't it? Here we've been sweltering in the 100's for over a week now. Nice to be able to communicate with all screenprinters. Hope to keep a diague going or just tell a few good jokes or whatever. Ed

It's cold and depressing me :)

But I'm for the UK originally, so an Aussie winter is actually more like a British spring, and quite nice :)

I think the UK was 39C yesterday, the highest temp on record. You can always tell when we hit a record, as people start dying....

Thanks for the welcome Adam. Took a while to get back online, the heat and all. Looking forward to conversing with all.

Mainly direct to garment or textile printing. I have done transfers that were pre-printed "backwards", then heat pressed the image onto a tee shirt. Iron on designs that came with cereal like Capn' Crunch were ironed on using a wax paper in between the pellon that had the design and the substrate. The iron was on a low heat and you continuosly ironed all over the design for a while till the image would transfer. Then you had a decorated shirt! The best has always been direct printing. Thanks for the welcome and sorry if I went to far in explaining what I do
