Screen printing is not an easy job, there’s no denying that, but even I have thought it would be pretty fun to print my own tees, and I’m a guy that already has more than 300 of them (and I’ve stopped accepting samples, they all go to the other bloggers now). It seems that Print Liberation have felt that attraction too, a few years back they released a book about DIY screen printing, and now they’ve gone a step further by launching diyprintshop.com, a site dedicated to helping your ideas printed and out in the world.
Imagine you’re new to the industry and want to get your feet wet in the world of printing, maybe doing a few tees for your friends, or printing some posters you’ve designed, a kit that has everything in it from a company that you know makes cool shirts (that were good quality, if my trip to their shop in Philly back in ’09 is a fair representation, if not particularly up to date) would be a pretty appealing situation. You give them $250, they send to a box with everything in it and you’d be good to go. Well, apart from the actual t-shirts, but I guess that wholesaling blank tees isn’t a business they want to get into.
What do you think guys, seems pretty cool to me, any printers out there want to drop in their 2 cents in the comments?
