Well then you got everything... so basically what you are looking for is how to get a multi colored design done? Are you using capilary film or liquid emulsion? do you have an oversized printer?

http://planetarybargains.com/PBPictures/Tee%20Shirts/X-K-Q/Masterbate-Shirt-Black-Front.jpg

this is the idea of what im trying to do......i want to be able to get an immage like master card logo for example and make it say what ever i want......if you have ever seen people selling shirts at a concert with whatever band name tweaked to look like famous logo....thats sort of the kind of thing im trying to make

i just got this stuff and really dont know what im doing...havent made anything yet...im not sure what im using yet, i think its emulsion(you talkin to make positives?) and i dont have a printer...im in the market if you have any advise on a good one.

Ok so here's the first thing. Each color is a new screen. So what you want is to have registration marks so everything lines up.


Design wise I just use inkscape and paint.net to design. Usually people use color separating software for their designs to be easier transferred to screenprinting.

I would be willing to do the design for you... it's a fairly simple logo

Im no graphic designer YET....im certainly going to learn all this stuff graphic wise just going to take some time and trial and error
