It always amazes me how natural kids are at handling a squeegee. My 10 year old son’s class are entering an olympic themed sports competition and I was asked to go in and print with them. 32 kids aged between 8-10 printed both the front and backs of their T’s and they all looked fabulous.

Common problems with Diazo Photo Emulsion

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

We are often asked for guidance with screen printing and the most common request is for help with exposing screens and the problems encountered.
