One of the most popular workshops is the Complete Screen Printing Business Course. It offers an A-to-Z look at screen printing from expert Instructor Terry Combs. Terry Combs brings 30 plus years of screen printing knowledge ranging from operating a screen printing shop to teaching to hundreds. Terry brings the student from preparing a screen to printing a multi-color t-shirt. Students gain hands-on experience and benefit from the interactive workshop format. One of students had this to say about his experience - “If you've ever wanted to try screen printing, or have just started out, this is a great class to take. It's well worth the cost of the two day class. This …class had Terry Combs as our instructor, and he was very informative, friendly, and easy to learn from…There is nothing better than hands on training. If you have been screen printing for a number of years, you will still find many new things that come out of this class for you to use on a daily basis. This is based on many of the people that were in this particular class that have been printing for a while already. They told me they loved it also. I had to skip a Jimmy Buffett concert to take this class, and it was worth it.” – Bill Leubbers. The 2013 Workshop schedule has been released with three new times. The Complete Screen Printing Business Course will be offered June 8-9, August 24-25, and November 2-3. The last several presentations of this class were completely sold out so it is best to register early.
