Showcasing Stencil-Making Innovation for Hobbyists and Craftsters

.......who want to learn to screen print t-shirts, pillows, golf towels, cards and everything else in-between in the intimacy of their own homes and/or studio.

Screen printing is a natural outcome of hobbies and crafts that involve textile or graphic arts. It offers an avenue in which to further skill level/experience for fun and/or to turn a hobby or craft into a business. How many of us started that way? I think I know the answer. And how many of our kids are creating/selling t-shirts, hats and more? I pretty much know that answer, too.  Either way, stencil-making is key to printing. And there is a way to ramp up learning and skill level with a revolutionary stencil-making system by RhinoTech for craftsters and hobbyists of any age.

Why do you need a stencil to screen print?  A stencil is the central application to applying a design to the surface of the item that is going to be printed.  A stencil can be made with specialized stencil paper, a thin sheet of plastic, metal, cardboard etc. that results in designs being cut or printed on so that ink can be applied through the incisions or slight open spaces onto the surface.

Traditional stencil-creation involves a lengthy, drawn out process of using a film positive, emulsion, capillary film, exposure and drying time. THE NEWEST PROCESS that is RhinoScreen Dry Stencil Film eliminates these steps enabling a quick and simplified way to create a stencil.

This system boosts the learning curve for hobbyists and craftsters enabling new creative and artistic pursuits in a very short time. Engagement will increase knowledge, skill and experience.  And has the power to fulfill dreams.

Why use RhinoScreen Dry Stencil Film-CH? It is a highly efficient stencil making system that expedites the end result. These are the steps to create a Stencil: 1) create image in a negative format using your own computer; 2) print the design on a laser printer using a RhinoScreen Image Sheet; 3) apply Image Sheet to polyester mesh screen frame with your regular household iron (do not use steam) by ironing Image Sheet onto the  screen frame for 60-90 seconds; 4) once cooled, peel back the Image Sheet that will leave the toner behind on screen and VIOLA, you have created a stencil; 5) block out surrounding area with masking or other tape. You are now ready to screen print on the items of your choice. For textiles or card stock use water-based RhinoAqua Ink from RhinoTech.

And three of the top  reasons to use RhinoScreen Dry Stencil Film-CH is that the paper is recyclable (papers contain no silicone or organic pollutants); the ink is water-based and biodegradable.
