One of our 2011 studio goals was to learn to silk screen, and be able to tackle small projects in our basement…aka “the Underground.”
Since none of us really had any experience screening, we called our friends over at OnPoint promotions to show us the ropes. Located in Lakewood, the team at OnPoint so graciously invited us over, had our artwork already “screened up” and showed us how to pull our ink through to imprint nicely onto our adorable little lunch bags.
If you’ve never tried it, silk screening truly is an art. The delicate balance of when to lightly press down vs when to increase pressure on the screen is like a well choreographed dance, a true talent.
