DIY Greeting Cards: Screenprinting (Nov 2017)
Screenprinting is one of many processes at Spudnik Press that can be used to print your own set of greeting cards. This is a quick and fun introduction to printing on paper allows students to dabble with a new process while making personalized cards for their friends and family.
Students will bring to the workshop their own one-color digital or hand-drawn designs. Not a design expert? No problem! Any bold black and white image will work, and students will be able to finesse their design after learning the strengths and limitations of the process. While .AI or .PSD files are great, we welcome students to bring anything from text typed in Microsoft Word to photocopies.
Throughout the workshop, they will use a darkroom to expose their design to a screen, mix their own ink color, and most importantly, print, print, and print. Students will walk away with a set of 20 handmade greeting cards for friends, family and coworkers.
Basic white 5×7” flat cards are available for students who do not bring their own cards.
