Tedious Part of My Job

I'm not really good at stretching screen on the frame... maybe it just needs years of practice for me...
At least my dog takes away my stress :)

Wow. You really do do everything yourself. I could never do it either. I buy aluminium screens and if they need remeshing, I pay the professionals to do it. Much...less...stressful. Dogs are good though.

Hi Thea,

Screenprinting at home/small studio is not very popular in here and it costs me too much to ask professionals to do it... Australia seems to have many independent textile printing artists - very interesting and I'm envious! :)

I love the stretching of the screens! I just don't like to do the taping off after stretching.

Angie, you are so lucky to enjoy the stretching part! I like to do taping off :)

I've never stretched a screen before...and I don't think I want to! I just send my screens into the manufacturer and they do the work for me :p By the way, lovely new designs! can't wait to see the birdy looking one on fabric :)

I don't know how handy it is to just ask a professional to do the job in the US but it saves me a lot of money here in Japan :)
