Ryonet Offers May, June Startup Screen-Print Experience Classes
Ryonet Corp., Vancouver, Wash., is offering a unique opportunity for industry novices to start their journeys into screen printing guided by industry veterans in a real shop.
The Ryonet Screen Print Experience classes are two-day sessions that are held from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and lunch is provided. Attendees will experience every step of the process, from creating artwork to catching a shirt as it comes off the dryer.
In addition to instruction, participants also get a Ryonet screen-printing class book. Admission includes a variety of shirts, including those made from tri-blends, 100% cotton and polyester, provided by leading manufacturers BELLA + CANVAS, Next Level Apparel, Hanes and Jerzees.
The class begins with prepress and dark-room topics, including basic artwork and color separations; film output options; choosing an emulsion and coating a practice screen; using a preregistration template; burning a screen; screen-washout techniques; related software programs; and cleanup.
