Last week we finally got the chance to have a play with our new bit of equipment - our new 4-colour t-shirt printing carousel - given to us by our nice friends at wickedprintingstuff.com
The carousel makes it much easier to print colour separations onto t-shirts, bags, aprons, etc. and register each colour accurately. We thought it would be appropriate to use the wypw logo and print some staff t-shirts...unfortunately it turned out that we only had extra large...so there'll be some more printing sessions to come I think!
Here are some photos to show each step of the process. The carousel is available for members to use at the standard hourly rate, you will just need a quick induction first.
