You Can Learn to Screen Print

Print Liberation will teach you how to screen print with readily available materials and easy instruction. Even if you're starting out in a scary basement or in the tiny bathroom in your cramped apartment with a $40 budget, Print Liberation will show you everything you need to know to get started. And if you're already in a rented studio with a few bucks to spend, this book can help you turn screen printing into your personal art or business.

Seriously, this is a completely comprehensive how-to guide. You'll start by learning the history of the craft accompanied by graphic illustrations. Then, step-by-step photographs walk you through the ins and outs of all the main screen-printing techniques, including printing on dimensional surfaces, such as walls and goats (although the latter is not recommended). You'll even find advice about how to turn screen printing into a money-making venture, either by selling your work through galleries or by offering your services locally to make posters, T-shirts and anything else people might need.

You can do it. Your imagination is your only limitation.

Jamie Dillon and Nick Paparone met twelve years ago while skateboarding in front of a Subway restaurant in a suburban strip mall. Throughout the years they have collaborated on many diverse projects, including everything from printing wallpaper to re-constructing the peak of Mount Everest. In 1999 they founded the Print Liberation, a design and print studio dedicated to pounding the malleable nature of culture with typography, T-shirts and screen-printed objects. Currently the two live in Philadelphia where they can be found working hard every day to make new things for the world and its people.
