"Register for one, or really maximise your value and time by registering for both," said Johnny Shell, vice president, print technology and training, SGIA. "This hyper-focused week provides an excellent opportunity to learn about workflow from A to Z. Students will experience a variety of art types and separation techniques, and then get hands-on experience printing the variety of art covered earlier in the week."
Dane Clement of Great Dane Graphics will lead the 'Art & Separations for Screen Printed Apparel' workshop. Clement will guide attendees through creative design basics to produce eye-popping prints and cover the secrets of producing separations for any type of printing. Attendees will learn how to handle simple vector art and more advanced separation techniques, like four-colour process and simulated process.
"Most production artists are self-taught, and as a result, may lack some of the efficiency skills and separation techniques they need to improve quality and productivity. This class has the industry's best instructor on this topic. Clement is a recognised expert on art and separations for screen printed t-shirts," Shell said.
For 'Totally T-Shirts! Apparel Screen Printing', SGIA will bring back screen printing legend Charlie Taublieb and a hands-on workshop that guides students through stretching, coating and exposing screens and hands-on experience with today's popular printing techniques. Designed for users new to screen printing t-shirts as well as seasoned professionals, this workshop will spark new ideas and offer plenty of practice with advanced techniques that set leading shops far above the rest.
The intensive 3-day workshop will offer the full range of training and hands-on printing including advanced screen making techniques using the latest high-tech equipment, artwork and separations, press setup and registration, critical facts for using plastisol, water-based discharge, special effects, etc, parameters for proper flashing and curing, advanced printing techniques, production tips and tricks to increase efficiency, throughput and yield.
"Our neutral, unbiased training methods focus on technique and proper execution that will improve productivity and efficiency," said Shell. "I encourage apparel decorators to send their production teams to at least one, if not both."
SGIA is the premier printing and graphic arts trade organisation that provides members with cutting edge resources, tools and education to promote growth and convergence into new market segments. (PC)
