Screenprint Your Own Valentines

Regardless of how romantic one feels on this hallmark holiday, a clever valentine is always a thrill to receive. Impress friends and coworkers with hand-printed valentines featuring your own artwork. Students can bring 1-color design that they would like to make into a stack of greeting cards. Designs can be a black and white drawing, simple text, a .pds or .ai file, or found imagery. Screens will be pre-coated with photographic emulsion. Students learn how to make their image “print ready”, expose a screen, mix ink, and register their image on cards.
