Well I guess we all have our different backgrounds. I personally am a dumb untrained ink pusher. ( I dare not call myself a screenprinter as it may cause more anger in this world) I have asked for years on this message board for info and as far as certain things go have had small amounts of info for which I am very thankful. I remember the replys I got mostly from the trained. they seemed to think it was an impossibility I was too unskilled and those in the industry seemed to want to keep the money to them selves. I ask all those professionals how many of you can print better quality than the trained guys in town (they are all about the money push there product out with bleeds misreg and then there prints flake cause they cant use there $20,000 dryer properly) recon your own motor to A grade standard Put a roof on to building standards (which is what I did yesterday) and then just to add to the arrogance design and build there own set up including a eight colour caro with microreg to a 1/4 mm( and im not talking about some of those doggie home jobbies that I have seen the trained using) but a real machine proberbly better than most of you use. Like the guy before me I would like to use my example to show those getting shot down by the trained not to listen to the pessimists you can do it .I put a point to you, I do understand that in modern screenprinting we all strive for perfection in our processes.
But skateboardprinting is not process printing! it is proberbly closer to hand streached hand printed art at school. according to all modern screen techneques it will not work ,but somehow it does.the answer is in the simlicity not the complexity.tune in to skull and bones the boys there are real people with real passion for what they are doing. over the next few months every aspect of that system will be revealed.
Paul to answer your question go to www.creativescreentech.com they were making frames for boards . as for the pessimistic trained among you i think waterbased inks are the way to go as the ink your using seems to be srinking your brain. open your mind to new possibilities and remember that the art you were trained in was developed by untrained people with a passion and an open mind. I bet that when that first leaf print was printed back hundreds af years ago in china.the boys didnt stand around stoking in all the money they were going to make. I am guessing that the were happy to be doing something to further the art! Ah what do I know.
By the way we had best give thanks to those with the balls .To Donald thanks for getting things started .to Scott(if thats you) thanks for the info and to Dave thanks for keeping things going.
