Another Screenprinting Customer and Student Learns How to Fish!

I teach and help a lot of people to learn how to screen print tee shirts locally and throughout the world. But I have noticed reluctance and a certain apprehension when it comes to going it alone with many students. So I want to share an old proverb about fishing that I learned from my great father Senior Catspit John Monaco. He once said, “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you TEACH him how to fish, he will eat for a lifetime.” This is very true with screen printing and we can even go further here. Let me say I can only teach and guide you so much. There comes a point where you need to “dive” in and start learning by trial and error. Otherwise you will be handicapped in your printing efforts if you rely too heavily on anyone to complete the task. Check out this very awesome print from Kevin Merrow at Deep Narcosis Scuba here in Maricopa, AZ. At first he was apprehensive about making his owns screens even after buying all the necessary tools and supplies. But look at his work now. Notice the capital T registration marks 😉 Kevin and his wife did the art, film positives, the screens and the printing here. This job turned out great. They did an excellent job and I think they are now very proud and happy to have accomplished this. They both will make excellent screen printers to serve their community of divers and associates. Check them out online….
