Cure at 320°

After a distressing start, today was the first time at the press where things seemed to really click.

Minor screen printing realizations :

If you're printing a bright color on a dark shirt, throw a hit of white underneath. You'll save yourself a lot of time and the colors will appear true.

There is zen to finding the middle of the shirt when there is no crease. Observe the grain of the fabric, pull at the corners and sense off-center tension. Become one with the apparel.

Also, rejected shirts can be salvaged.
