October 13, 2015

Are you interested in learning about the craft of screen printing? Would you like to screen print your own design on a poster? Now’s your chance! On Saturday, October 24 from 10-4 PM, we are hosting a FREE Poster Printing Workshop! RSVP to email@weiskamp.com by October 22 to reserve your slot at this fun hands-on experience.

 

Poster Printing Workshop 2015
First Time Printers:
We will still be doing an interactive demo print starting at 10am sharp, followed by a brief explanation on how to set up a file for future screen prints.

 

Returning Printers:
If you have attended the previous workshop (or have previous screen printing experience) you may screen print your own design. Things to consider while setting up your file:

 

-Max size : 12in x 18in (free Weiskamp supplied paper is sized 11in x 17in, or you can bring your own paper)
-Max Number of Screens: Your Photoshop or Illustrator file should be layered by color ( i.e. one layer per screen)
-Raster files should be at 300 dpi
-Send Art Files to matthewharlan@gmail.com by Thursday October 22nd.  Feel free to email Matt with any questions!
