WKS131: Screen Printing and Vinyl Cutter SBUs
Class Number 1521-104717

Vinyl cutting and screen printing go hand in hand, and this fun workshop will show you how!

First, you'll learn how to safely operate the vinyl cutter and use it to make custom stencils to suit all your screen printing needs. When using the vinyl cutter, as opposed to hand-cutting your stencils, the possibilities for easily making intricate designs is infinite. You'll also learn how to import your own vector designs from graphics programs to use the vinyl cutter to create cool stickers, custom signage, and more! Be sure to come with a design file in hand, or at least in mind.

Next, it's onto the screen printing station. You'll learn how to prep your stencil, transfer it to a screen, mask the screen, then apply ink through the stencil and screen onto your shirt. It's a much quicker, easier process than photo emulsion, and it cures quickly, too. You'll spend the last few minutes of class heat-setting your shirt, and voila! You'll be the proud owner of your very own, handmade screen printed shirt that is sure to be an eye catcher.

Once you have taken and successfully passed this class, you will be cleared to use the screen printing station AND vinyl cutter.
