Would anyone be interested in GS shirts?

I've been brainstorming what I'll do when I get all this screening stuff (damn expensive stuff, ) and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a GS shirt or some variety?

I could prolly come up with a lot of different types and such since it's not so bad to make them if you do el cheap way.

U Betcha.

But it has to be organic and fair-trade

Hopefully I can find some of reasonable cost, which I think I ought to be able to, but Iono, haven't looked exhaustively yet.

If it is cotton I wont throw a fit. But yeah, go for it. It would start conversations very easy.

SVOBoy, it shouldn't cost too much money to make a single color screen. I think you can make a screen for around $20 total (chemicals and a frame, with LOTS of chemicals left over).

If there is a good design, I would not be opposed to breaking out the old silk screening equipment and taking a stab at it again too.

I remember my father doing this when I was a child, he made piles of hats and shirts with his logo on them...It doesn't actually seem to hard, but doesn't the applied material fade easy?

It all depends on what type of ink you use. The good stuff you actually cure by putting it in an oven for 5 seconds or so. That stuff will NEVER come off.

I have some paint from a sign guy that used to silk screen and a digital printing press that makes silk screens at 400dpi on bananna skin paper coated with a thermal plastic barrior and uses a thermal print head to print the image on it - 11x16.5 print area screen. No chemicals needed!

Indeed it is not lall tht expensive but it seems it to me who has no money besides all that he's spent on feeding himself lately,

Anyway, when I figure out how to get the bus into the next town over, everything will be well.
