A Kid Friendly Way to Learn the Satisfying Skill of Silk Screening
The ALEX® silk screen machine is designed with kids in mind. It is easy to put together and take apart. Just pop open the 2 hinged pieces on the back to snap in a new silk sheet. They are just as easy to remove to rinse off and reuse for next time. Instead of the messy and tedious process of applying a screen filler to create your designs, just slide in a plastic stencil in to the back of the machine and print clean crisp images in seconds. The stencils are also easy to rinse off and reuse. Super simple video instructions can be found on www.alextoys.com in addition to the easy printed instructions.

Express Your Creativity and Customize your Clothes
Silk screen onto t-shirts, sweatshirts, bags, pillow cases or cloth napkins. The kit includes 14 precut stencil designs, including large motifs, linear designs and smaller images for all different kinds of projects. There are also instructions for how to make your own unique paper stencils to totally customize your projects. Make a stencil of your initials and mark your stuff. Take a plain t-shirt and turn it in to a totally creative expression of your personal style. A great activity for parties and sleepovers.

Endless Ways to Use Your Silk Screen Factory
Your first project is included in the in the kit: a fabric bandana that you can actually wear. But besides fabric, the Silk Screen Factory also works on paper so it’s the perfect way to make your own greeting cards and posters. A hand silk screened card or fabric project make wonderful gifts that will be cherished. Each print will be slightly different giving it that rich handmade look yet still produce a consistent professional looking results.

Customer Questions & Answers

We received this as a gift and the silk pieces are too narrow and can't be tightened with the frame.
Lani
The kit is very easy to use and the results are pretty good, of course, the older you are and the more adult help you get, the better.
Marga
Wished it came with a storage case and a couple more items for printing but I sure I can find these things at the dollar store.

This kit is pretty well made. It has all you need to star "silk screening" on paper (and a bandana) right away. You can get cheap t-shirts and bags at a craft store to have something more to silkscreen on.

The kit is very easy to use and the results are pretty good, of course, the older you are and the more adult help you get, the better. But my 7yo can do it by herself (with mixed results).

As often with Michael products, I think it's too expensive for what it is - but I'd buy it again.

Wasn't sure what to expect from a toy screen printing machine, but this actually worked! We were able to decorate a T-shirt with designs from the stencils enclosed in the kit, without too much difficulty. The results were quite good, considering the simplicity of this device. The screen printing inks included in the kit make a sharp, clean imprint that looks quite nice. Basically, it's a small, plastic frame, and you load it with a small rectangle of silk, and place a plastic stencil underneath. Then, you just apply the inks with a little rubber squeegee. Couldn't be simpler! The only thing that was a little tricky was that the frame didn't immobilize the silk on all four sides, only at the two ends, so you have to be careful when you apply the ink and make sure you only draw the ink across the frame in one direction, otherwise the silk comes out of the frame. It comes with rectangles of heavy, coated paper that you can use to create your own stencils, also. Everyone was amazed that we could create such cool-looking designs with this smple device! It was easy enough to use that my 7-year-old could make T-shirts with minimal assistance, and she learned about printmaking, and created some really nice designs.

My 8 year old loves this, only problem is she wants screen print everything in the house. So I recomend that you have plenty of items on hand for them to use.

Although my daughter worked with my granddaughter on this "project", I heard all about it and saw the results of the silk screening. The toy is very creative and I would buy it again for my other grandchildren.

My son really really wanted to paint t-shirts, so I couldn't resist getting this for him for Christmas, even though a girl was pictured on the box. He got over it, but was dismayed to see the pink and purple inside. Unfortunately all the stencils are also very very 'girly' and though he had a great time painting puppy prints across a tshirt, there's not much else he was willing to do with it that he'd be able to wear to school. I'm disappointed to find that the refill kit is also filled with girly stencils. I'm not normally concerned with gender-specific items, but my son truly does not want flowers, butterflies or hearts all over his shirts. If he did, I'd be all for it. But he doesn't. We'll be looking for stencils he would be able to use with this (Alex toys don't seem to make any) and maybe creating our own. I'm glad I got this during a gold box deal, or it would have been waaaayyy too much money. He did say he would love to make gifts for his (girl) cousins with it, so at least there's that. :/ Oh well.

What a creative outlet for kids to learn what goes in to the process of designing. To those that are so inclined toward the artistic side it is a beginning step. Take one granddaughter who wants to be an artist (we know how hard it is to make a living at that even if you are really talented), and introduce her to another way that could be developed in to a good paying job, She can still paint and still develope a job skill that she will enjoy going to work instead of hating going to work (a long look down the road, she is only 10). And who knows maybe she will be one of the lucky ones.... :). Oh, how deep I am today, by the way the product is fantistic. Too bad you had to read through my ramblings to find that out. Yeah, I will by another one. I have more than one artist grandchild (lucky me, I mean that sincerely).
