About This Class


Join Melanie as she demonstrates her favorite technique for creating simple and professional screenprints at home; using a vinyl cutting machine or a decal you've purchased, create personalized tees, sweatshirts, tote bags, or greeting cards! Cut your design out of vinyl once and get myriad uses out of it.

She'll walk you through setting up your design for cutting, cutting and weeding the vinyl, applying the vinyl to your screen, and printing the design onto a sweatshirt. This is a great technique for printing multiples of a design for a wedding, bachelor or bachelorette party, or even printing your business's logo onto products you've made.
