DIY Valentines: Screenprint Your Own Cards
Regardless of how romantic one feels about Valentine’s Day, a clever valentine is always a thrill to receive. Impress friends and coworkers with hand-printed valentines featuring your own design.
Students each bring a one-color design that they would like to transform into a stack of greeting cards. Designs can be a black and white drawing, simple text, a Photoshop or Illustrator file, or found imagery. Students will learn how to make their image “print ready”, expose a photographic screen, mix their own custom ink color, and register their image onto cards. Students will print 20 unique valentines and are encouraged to swap cards with their classmates and bring home a DIY variety pack of cards.
