Top customer reviews
1) Lots of information.
2) Written in a goof-ball friendly manner that is easy to read.
3) Does go into some of the business aspects and more advanced topics.
4) Good for someone with some experience, looking into expanding into a business (this is not me).
5) Forms and paperwork examples are very nice.
6) Good overview of all the options out there.
1) Not much in the way of step by step instruction, and not really good for a real beginner (this is me).
2) Outdated processes and material.
3) Areas seemed rather self-serving.
4) Despite being goof-ball and easy to read, it was not very engaging (read-boring).
Overall, I do not recommend for a beginner-I really thought that the Ryonet screen-printing 101 DVD did a much better job of explaining it in a step by step manner. I watched that first, and I am not sure I would have understood the book as well had I not. BUT perhaps that is also why I found it a very dull read-must take into account I watched the video first. These have been my only two resources up to now, other than the massive number of free videos on the internet.
Just about everything else I had never read and never even considered.
What's the best way to print puff inks so they finish smoothly? Change the dot density?
What's dot density? It's covered in the book. In depth.
How could I set up a commercial shop? There's a floor plan in here.
Plans for a one color machine? Plans for a four color machine? Parts list and plans included as appendices.
Information on $50,000 presses? There also.
It's all in there and a ton of other stuff I can't even remember at the moment. This book makes me want to buy Post-It flags and a highlighter and go to town.
If you want to know about it, it's in there. If you don't want to know about it - like you're not interested - that's in there too and you can go ahead and skip that section and not worry about it.
I wish it had a lay-flat spine so you could really open it up and annotate it but I'd hardly consider that a mark against it.
It's slightly expensive but once you realize what's inside, totally worth it. And reasonably up-to-date, as far as technologies go.
If you're considering buying one book about screen printing, make it this book.
No regrets from me.
