This book teaches you everything you need to know!

How to start on a shoestring and build a profitable company.

All about computer graphics

All about screen making

All about T-shirt Inks

How to build and buy equipment

Where to find customers

How to market and sell your work

How to set-up a shop in your home or large factory

How to use specialty inks like puff, shimmer, high density, glitter and suede

How to make heat transfers

Also shows you how to print jackets, sweatshirts, caps, posters signs and more.

Although the book has a U.S slant to it everything is laid out clearly and the chapters cover all the information that you will need and written in simple terms without patronising.

The best sections of the book are those that show you how to build your own screens, your own exposure unit, vacuum table, your own one simple printing station, and even a 4 colour printing carousel!

Illustrated throughout with other a thousand colour photos, illustrations and diagrams.

With this book I started my own business and I recommend it thoroughly!

1994 edition so out really of date, some of it may possibly still be relevant but difficult to know which bits.
Now I know why it was so cheap!

5.0 out of 5 stars start with this book 10 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Don't waste your time with other books. Read this first! I screwed around with other books, and even a few video tapes before running across this. I underestimated the book at first (mainly due to the title-it sounded to me like one of those "I'll show you how to make money!" garbage books) But, I was presently surprised, and my shirts didn't turn out well until I read this.
It is written by Scott Fresener who is one of the industry's leaders, and he also runs a screen printing school in AZ. Many of the other books I've seen are on a craft level, or talk about ways of doing things that are from the 70's and way out of date.
This book will give you a good overview of the whole process, equipment used and your options at several price levels (home made to large production), and even has plans to make your own press. It is a valuable resource that will save you lots of time and money.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has it all: how to print, how to market and sell 18 Oct 2002
By Manny Hernandez - Published on
I recently had the opportunity of attending one of the seminars taught at U.S. Screen Printing Institute, in Tempe, AZ, the company whose founder (Scott) wrote this book. It was there that I got my hands on this book. The book totally takes you through the ins and outs of printing T-Shirts, whether you want to do it (as the title says) for fun or as a serious business. It not only discusses the technical part in enough detail: it also goes into the marketing and sales of your product. Scott has shared in this book (and all the products he offers) his knowledge and experience of over 25 years in this industry, so that all who are considering taking it seriously as a business don't fall in the same pitfalls he went through. So: don't waste your time and money. Get yourself a copy of this great book. It's worth every penny you will pay for it and more!

With ten years of experience in the screenprinting business, I have not seen a better resource for a first time printer than this book. This is our 5 star choice book at :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, but could have been better 23 Dec 2004
By Alexander J. Fink - Published on
Let me start first of all and say that this book covers just about everything you need to know, and more that you don't need to know. Searching online I was unable to find good and free information about t-shirt printing, so I finally broke down and got this book. Despite the rather rediculous price, I was surprised by the quality of the book.

How to Print T-Shirts shows you all the different techniques, it tells you the costs and it even tells you how to build printing machines on your own. The explanations could use a little bit of work, but overall it was great.

5.0 out of 5 stars BOOK TO BUY 2 Oct 2005
By Milky Wave - Published on
Every question you can possibly have about screen printing is answered in this book. All though we had ordered this book and through a series of events we got it over a month late.We purchased other screen printing books while we waited. We could not actually start till this one arrived.

It helped tremendously. It is thorough . The other books were nice, pretty pictures, high art books I am sure they will be inspirtational. But if you are begining ,pay the extra to get this book. If you only buy one book , buy this book. Sorry to all the other authors. This book even deals with the actual buisness.
