So i've never screenprinted EVER EVER EVER. & i have no idea how to do it. Honestly, nothing. So could someone direct me to a step-by-step tute or give me a brief one themselves? where do you buy the supplies? is it costly? thanks!

here's a tutorial by barrysfarm to get you started:


my recommendation is to read through a few tutorials.  let it stew.  go back and look at anything you're not quite clear on.  it took me a week or so to finally go, "oh, i get it!"

it can be a bit costly to start up- getting the screens (or stuff to make the screens yourself), ink, emulsion, reclaimer, etc etc.  but if you break it down per shirt (or whatever it may be that you are printing on), it's usually pretty cheap.  obviously the more prints you do, the cheaper it will be per piece.
