In the 21st century, people search for different ways to express themselves. Many use clothing as mediums of expression. To be even more specific, t-shirts are the most popular way to express oneself. But there are times when you just don’t like the brand name clothing and it’s really easy to learn how to design your own shirts.

However, the problem with designing and making your own shirts the with 수원셔츠룸 professional equipment is that the studio and materials needed are expensive, so people have to invest a grand sum of money to make shirts. But if you still believe that expressing yourself to the fullest is worth the money, then here are the steps to making a t-shirt.

Before we start to make a shirt, there are some materials you need. These are some heavy-duty items, so I suggest that either you borrow it from some company or go to your local school to use it if they have them. You’ll need a screen, screen press, an emulsion room, emulsion, amberlith (or ruby lith), light exposure unit, drawings you want on your shirt, squeegees, a flash curing unit, a shirt sleeve, and a sprayable glue across surfaces that will come off easily.

Step 1) The first step is to choose a design that you really like. If this is your first time printing a shirt on a screen press, try to go with a simple design first so that you get the hang of printing on fabric.

Step 2) Grab your squeegee and your emulsion, and cover both sides of your screen in emulsion and let it sit in the emulsion room for a full day. Be careful not to get it on your clothes because the emulsion won’t come out.

Step 3) While the emulsion covered screen is drying, trace over the design you have chosen on amberlith (or rubylith) and cut out the design but don’t press too hard as to cut through the acetate that is with the amber/rubylith. Then, after the emulsion has dried, take your screen and put your design on the screen and burn it into the screen using a light exposure unit. You’ll now have your graphic that you want to put on your shirt.

Step 4) Next, spray your shirt sleeve with the glue (you only need a little bit, just to make sure the shirt stays put) andput a clean shirt (any color) onto your shirt sleeve and line it up with your screen. The screen should have an area on the printing machine where it can lock in right above the shirt sleeve.
