M&R’s Miami Branch Offers Screen-Printing Essentials Course
The M&R Cos., Roselle, Ill., is offering a two-day course in basic screen printing, to be held Sept. 14-15 at its Miami branch office.
The course will cover artwork; screen registration; screen making; screen cleaning; manual printing (hands on); automatic printing (hands on); garment curing and shop layout.
“These courses have become very popular and we’re excited to be able to offer small-shop and new automatic press owners a course dedicated to providing a solid understanding of basic screen-printing techniques and practices,” says Andrea Bardenheuer, M&R’s director of Latin America sales.
M&R’s Patrick Lashbrook will oversee training. He has a background in specialized water-based printing. He joined M&R as a digital specialist, training customers on the company’s computer-to-screen (CTS) equipment and later began training U.S. and Central America customers on basic and advanced screen-printing techniques, according to the company. Lashbrook is one of M&R’s Southeast regional sales managers and currently trains customers in that region.
“Patrick combines a wealth of knowledge with years of practical experience and a passion for teaching virtually every aspect of screen printing,” says Glen Carliss, head of M&R sales in the eastern United States. “The people he has trained invariably praise Patrick’s ability to simplify the most complex issues and to impart the tips and tricks that increase their shops’ quality and productivity. It’s an especially valuable course for those who aren’t content to learn by trial and error.”
The course fee is $299, with limited seating and lunch will be provided both days.
