I was told how much the whole shebang costs but it was in Swedish currency, but I will try my guess. I think that the frame, which is your basic A4 that was used yesterday, is about £25, and the paints themselves are about £8 each.

I think that they're a great little subversive investment.

I've not personally seen how the printer transfers work out, yet, save for the ones posted earlier on in this thread. I hope to see soon though. I would say that screen printing looks bloody good so far, but it's early doors in the first half.

As memory serves me it lasted for over a year - so can't have been too bad .

It was well expensive, I seem to remember. I guess I will have to make and sell approximately a billion t-shirt prints to make up for the cost for the frame and the squeegee. But maybe you can find it cheaper on the internet. I bet you can. I bought mine (to make Sarah Records t-shirts a number of years ago) in a pretentious shop for art students and proper artistes and I felt like everyone was laughing at me for being such an amateaur. But look at me now! Everyone on the entire interweb loves my print!

And so the farming industry continues.

This again was done by the lovely meepmeep and it took a little longer than the Fat Tulips one. The devil is in the detail on it - she handpainted the cat's face and other sundry items.

It looks pretty fucking neat. And I've always wanted a t-shirt like this.

Danke tack!

Emelie is the dab hand for these things. Even as we speak a bag is being made in the kitchen with Claire Grogan's soddened image used.

I declare that when I start to use the print screen, loads and loads of wedding t-shirts can be made for yours and Jayen's big day :)

Not really. They'd look awful if I made them.

This is my fear. I need a personal meepmeep. I'll ask my girlfriend if she's a bit less clumsy in these things then I usually am. The Beat Happening shirt looks ace by the way!

I think the problem lies here. No wedding t-shirts for me, please, haha. It is too close in idea to this:
http://www.advantagebridal.com/curhinsw.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Which freaks me out.

It feels a bit 'branded cattle'-y. Anyway, I'm only hyphenating, so I bet double last names wouldn't even fit on the back of a velour hoodie, glued on in rhinestones, haha.

Oroa dig inte, Astrid. If I did make t-shirts for your wedding they would probably say WAGS are See You Next Tuesdays.

Thanks RITH. I think you should at least try. It just struck me now that on the back of that Beat Happening t-shirt I could make a K and put it on the reverse tomorrow. I've been promised that this is easy. If I do bodge it up then it will be on the back and the cardigan will be worn at all times. The K logo should be well easy as it's just cutting out the logo and hoping that my hand is steady when screen painting.

I have still got the paper cut out for the Beat Happening print, so I can make you one if you pay me in the currency of candy!

I'd pay you in the currency of money, if you're serious.

Hey Colin, meepmeep asks if you're going to Indietracks. She can make you one and hand it over then. I've also been told that due to the pound being very low compared to the krona, she will look to settle on eight or nine quid.

I feel like a stockbroker now.

Oh, what size are you?

I'll be at Indietracks, yes. If that's one of those H&M t-shirts, I believe I take a Large. Thanks!

It's indeed an H&M t-shirt, and large it is! I'll get round to making it closer to the time of Indietracks then. And then I can only wait for K Records to sue me for copyright infringement!

Heh. I'll need to double-check the size when I get home tonight. I've got one of those t-shirts and I'm pretty sure it's large, but I usually get medium. If it ends up being too big I can always alter it (he says with no knowledge of how to do such things).

Just check the size and let me know. Also, I assume you want a white t-shirt with black print?

if anyone's still looking for screen printing stuff, i may have mentioned this before but the speedball value kit has everything you need for £50. i think that's pretty reasonable. i bought mine from the london graphics store but they've put the price up there, you can get it here though http://www.fibrecrafts.com/ProductDetai ... FromPage=2" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

i used it to make the wintergreen t-shirts, which at least one of you might remember! now i've moved on to gocco or embroidering. embroidering t-shirts is much better than i thought it would be. you can just draw whatever you like and go over it with thread. like this i made for alec:

and this one with leaves was very quick to make:
