Stupid T-Shirt Tricks by the Expert

I am a screen printer by trade. For 30 years, I've been in the wholesale T-Shirt printing business.
However, I'm a man of many interests. I'm also a writer, and I've been able to pen a short pile of articles on T-Shirt, Screen Printing and related topics for Demand Studios. Demand supplies non-fiction content for a variety of web sites such as EHow. For me, it's relatively easy money, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge about screen printing (such as it is!).
And yes, Demand Studios is what you would call a "content mill". That is not supposed to be a compliment! Yet when I write an article for them on T-Shirts and screen http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifprinting, I make a point of putting my best foot forward and doing a good job.

I thought I'd post links to some of the items I've penned for Demand Studios here:

Cheap Heat Printing Machines

Color Separation Techniques for Screen Printing

How to make an exposure unit for emulsion in screen printing

How to Make Your Own T-Shirt Printer

How to Do Silk-Screened Stencils

So there's five fairly handy articles on printing T-Shirts and related matters. If you would like to see more, you can visit ehow-dot-com and search on T-Shirts and screen printing. While I'm not the only person writing on the subject for them, I've certainly penned my share of stuff there.

As always, any inquiry about custom screen printing can be emailed to me at Manx Media, I'm happy to take a shot at any query. If I don't know the answer, I'll probably be able to recommend someone who can.

And here is a tip: What is the easiest thing to screen print on T-Shirts? Line art, in one color. My Dog Boy art below is a good example of one color line art.
