About This Class

Always wanted to print your very own t-shirts? You can!

Screen printing is a great way to easily create professional quality t-shirt prints that will look great and last a long time. The screen printing process can seem overwhelming to beginners, but after this class you will have an easily repeatable process to become a screen printing wizard.
