SGIA to offer popular workshops for screen printers

Mar '20
This April, Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) will conduct 3 popular hands-on workshops for screen printers at SGIA headquarters in Virginia for all skill levels. The workshops are: Screen Making: Basic to Advanced (April 6-8); Art & Separations for Screen Printed Apparel (April 13-14); and Totally T-Shirts! Apparel Screen Printing (April 15-18). 

“These popular industry workshops offer absolutely something for everyone,” said Johnny Shell, SGIA VP, print technology and training. “Whether you are brand new to screen printing, or are looking to brush up your skills with the latest creative techniques and processes, these events are the very best way to dive in and get the experience you are looking for to take your business to the next level.”

Printing excellence begins with the right screen. The workshop is guaranteed to challenge each participant by combining real world experience with supporting theory. Beginning with the most basic methods and progressing to cutting-edge technology, attendees will master the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of making screens for virtually every job.

In the workshop ‘Art and Separations for Screen Printed Apparel’, renowned instructor Dane Clement, Great Dane Graphics, will guide participants through creative design methods to produce eye-popping prints and help unlock the secrets of producing separations for any type of printing. Attendees will learn how to work with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop applications to handle simple vector art through more advanced separation techniques like 4-colour process and simulated process. The same techniques can be applied to Corel applications for Corel users.

In the workshop ‘Totally T-shirts! Apparel Screen Printing’, industry veteran Charlie Taublieb, a recognised expert in decorated apparel with over 40 years of experience, will offer techniques to help attendees: produce stunning results; master the latest, most innovative inks and printing techniques, such as simulated process, water-based inks, special effects, gels, glitters and foils; and more.
