i have never heard of extreme screen printing. that sounds like printing while on a skateboard off a halfpipe. maybe High density. anyways there are different additives to give different textures to inks.

lol. I went to art school with a kid who dub'd himself an extreme artist. He put on an art show and skated a halfpipe with pant brushes in his hand and painted on a giant canvas, while shreding. You know when people pierce their back and hang from a cieling.....you could do that while printing. except instead of ink you could use blood. That would be pretty extreme. I'd buy your first shirt. I've never heard of extreme printing, i would assume you mean specialty inks and printing techniques.

Yes, specialty inks and printing techniques pretty much, but using the inks differently then what's just indicated on it. A hanger will hang clothes in normal state, but when straigtened it could be used differently.

For example, inks that when used look like leather or suede.

Sorry, I don't have pics.

I am currently still researching the different tools available. Yes, I'm a newbie to the business. I wanted to see what other people are using before I make a costly mistake.

Well there are different additives for different types of looks and feels. suede additive, puff additive, shimmer inks, glitter inks, metallic inks. discharge inks, waterbase inks, foil. some techniques require a heat press.

There is such thing as suede ink, an addative. Similar to puff ink. There are many different types of ink for texture. Different inks require different mesh count and curing times. Check out Echo, they use alot of specialty inks. Or at least they use to.

You should also check out Graphic Elephants special effects video.
Ryonet has it and I think you can also get it directly from Graphic Elephants.
They do some cool stuff.
Keep in mind, EXPERIMENT !
That's how these techniques develop!
