I've bought the majority of the supplies to start up doing one color designs, and I'm building a four color press.
The image above isn't mine, but it's essentially the same build as what I'm working on with my father. I haven't felt this excited in some time. Almost once a month I run into people who wants screen printed shirts, jerseys, and other attire. I've been able to help on a design end, but it really sucks having to farm out the actual printing to somewhere charging an arm and a leg.
Once I get going, I'm going to start taking on small jobs, like 5-20 one color design shirts. Once I feel comfortable, I'll expand from there.
I really need this to be the year I become a full time artist. The work I do for a living is soul crushing and thankless. I need to start doing what I love and seeing where that takes me!
