Step 1: Get everything you need.
You need a screen and frame, photo emulsion and sensitizer, latex gloves, silk screen fabric ink, and a piece of cardboard. You also need a light bulk (preferably 250 watts). A dark room is essential.
Step 2: Make the image.
The image is the aspect of T-shirt printing UK artists consider most importantly. Beginners should start simple. Avoid fine detail or thin lines or anything that is difficult to work on a shirt.
