I personally love Ryan Screen Supply for screens and squeegees. They are more of an industrial supplier - so their equipment is sturdy and the prices are great but I could never use up a gallon of ink. Smiley http://www.ryanrss.com/index.html

Blick art supplies is also a good place. http://www.dickblick.com/

I think the idea of hooking-up with a local screen printer is a really great one.

But if you're a little shy or if you just want to play around with making a T-shirt or printed bag check this fabulous tutorial for a very low budget screen printing technique. It's slow and not as crisp and clean as traditional screen printing - but you can probably find the materials at home right now!

So the question is do you preserve them as is or use them to craft with?  Smiley
I love using this kind of stuff - but then it's gone!

The placement on the T-shirt is perfect - right where intestines should be!

Very inspiring!

So did you serge the pages together?
Do you think that a person without a serger could just use a regular sewing machine?

Yes! I can see it!

That looks great!
So did you cut the stencil then attach it to the screen?
I'm interested in what you cut the stencil out of and how you did it a little more.

I have ordered supplies from Blick and Ryan supplies as well as Utrecht and I like Ryans supplies screens the best.
Their screens are the sturdiest, last longer than my Blick screens (they don't warp) and they are cheaper and often offer free shipping! They are geared towards the bigger silk screen customer so I've only purchased screens and emulsion from them.

I had similar problems and figured out that my emulsion was too old.
When I purchased new emulsion - all problems vanished. But I know that can be expensive.

One thing I learned is that heat is very bad for emulsion - keep it refrigerated if you can and if you are using a fan to help your screens dry it shouldn't be heated either.

One other thing I did before I was able to buy new emulsion was to under expose the image then very gently wash it off by just pouring water and rubbing the screen with my fingertips. Once I got the image areas cleared I would put it back under the light to harden up the emulsion and let it dry.
