  • How to use the thermofax

  • Drying and Screen Care

8pm - PLAY

  • Print the items you've brought in
  • Take home your new reusable screen
  • Take home a fancy squeegee for future use!


  • HUH?  How do I do this?  Read steps above and email us before you by a ticket if you are still scratching your head.
  • Why can I only email a Black&White image? The machine that "burns" the screen can only read black and white - no grayscale!!!
  • Why can I only screen print with 1-color on my items?  The kind of screens that are printed with the thermofax and the time alloted for this super basic 2-hour class are best suited for 1-color printing.
  • What colors can I print with?  We will have a variety of colors on hand for you to print with during the workshop only - Black/White/Bright colors/Dark colors.
  • What types of items can I print on? Sturdy fabrics, canvas, bags, tees, other clothing, cardstock, anything smooth!  Ask us prior if you aren't sure...
  • What color items can I print ON?  Depends, you can't print white ink on a white shirt, or black ink on a black shirt, otherwise, get wild, have fun with what's at your disposal.
  • But I really really want to print multiple colors for holiday cards!  Go to Baltimore Print Studios - they are rad and better set up for that :)  But we love you too.
