We'll be picking a day and time and location for printing at the next meeting. If you definitely want to screen print, but won't be at the meeting on the 25th, please leave a comment below with that information as well as any relevant scheduling difficulties you may have.
I have the screens and the inks and I did some test prints and they came out great!
These are made with Thermofax screens from Lynn of FibraArtysta (FibraArtysta).
But in the meantime, all you really need to do is pick out or purchase whatever you'd like to print on. I'm giving you advance notice in case you'd like to order something online.
I, for example, love t-shirts from Next Level Apparel, so I purchased a few on ebay from inprint.
$7! Here's my test one:
FYI: I think the sizing on these is pretty accurate. I usually wear a 10 or 12 and this is the Ladies Juniors Fit Cotton Scoop Neck Tee in Large.
Whatever you want to print on: quilting fabric, t-shirts, canvas bags, get it and prewash it.
The inks I bought are meant to print on "anything" but online reviews suggest that they do best on plastic and fabric. I printed the logo onto a nylon bag, however, and it definitely came out smeary, which didn't happen with the prints I did on good ol' cotton:
The logo is 9" wide and 3.3" tall with small trees. Or 9" wide and 5" tall with the larger trees.
I purchased (for all to use) the colors we used in our logo + black in Jacquard Screen Printing Inks.
These are water-based and can be mixed.
If you've got your heart set on another color, you should purchase that ink.
You can get any of the following inks/paints:
Jacquard Screen Printing Ink (from Dharma: http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/7647509-AA.shtml?lnav=paints.html)
Yudu Water-Based Screen-Printing Ink (they have these at the Jo-Ann's on Carpenter)
Jacquard Textile Color (from Dick Blick: http://www.dickblick.com/products/jacquard-textile-colors/)
Simply Screen Paint (from FibraArtysta's Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/FibraArtysta?section_id=7177985)
