Due to the two person requirements of our massive screens, printing times at I&S are restricted to after hours and weekends whilst the girls finish off their day jobs. We're still playing around with printing on sample fabrics, and it's going well.
The Acacia print in it's completed form. This is printed on a yellow/beige coloured Jersey that was donated to us so it's not worthy of sale as yardage methinks. But soon we'll print on 'proper' fabric I promise!
Mixing inks for the next test run. From this...

Serious & stylish cleaning action from Teegs.
It's funny, the part of the process I was most concerned about was the actual act of printing, and being able to get a good result. So far that has probably been the smoothest and easiest part of all! Mixing the right amount of ink and cleaning screens without getting mess and water everywhere has been the hard part. But it's all part of the learning curve and we're learning heaps which is great.
