Screen printing is a useful, exciting and fun craft. Traditional silk screening is expensive, messy, and requires a lot of space, making it difficult for non-professionals to silkscreen at home. Not anymore! StencilPro™ and PhotoEZ™ kits and silkscreen sheets are unique and specifically designed to be used at home, a studio or a small business. They are economical enough to use once or hundreds of times. Now it is possible to make one, twenty, or hundreds of t-shirts.
StencilPro™ and PhotoEZ™ kits were designed to silkscreen at home without the need of expensive silk screening equipment and supplies. The flexible pre-coated silkscreens eliminate the need for the user to coat screens. The sun is used to develop (burn) the screen, doing away with costly exposure units and machines. Alternatively, the screens can be developed with full spectrum daylight fluorescent tubes, or bulbs, or with yudu machines.
StencilPro™ and PhotoEZ™ silkscreen sheets do not use heavy frames. This allows screen printing on curved and irregular surfaces (such as wine glasses and furniture) in addition to flat surfaces. Clean up is a breeze in a typical home sink without those large heavy silk screen frames. Platens (flat printing forms used to attach silk screen frames) are also not required, another cost benefit.
StencilPro™ and PhotoEZ™ are quality professional silk screens that can be used hundreds of times with a single design. The stencils (screens with developed images) are not reclaimable, the process of cleaning the screens with chemicals and solvents in order to reapply emulsion to develop a different design. This makes StencilPro™ and PhotoEZ™ silkscreens safer for kids and adults, and makes them green products.
